Retail

Our specialist Retail Team provides advice to businesses at all stages of their development and progression. We also assist with projects to incentivise employees to help ensure that everyone in your organisation is working towards your key objectives and, if and when the time is right, we can assist with an exit whether that be by way of a trade sale, PE investment or share listing. We act for internationally famous brands as well as assisting start-ups opening their first store, on all aspects of their business.  The multi-disciplinary team can help to protect and promote your interests – whether you want to launch a new brand, take a franchise or implement commercial strategies to expand a chain of high street stores.

One of our key areas of expertise is acting for luxury retailers – over the years we have gained a detailed understanding and appreciation of the issues and challenges that present themselves to retailers.

If you are looking to develop a new retail presence, including online, we can provide advice on intellectual property, employment contracts, store opening and funding. We will also help you resolve issues relating to storage, distribution, planning, construction and fit-outs.

If you are an established retailer or international trader, we can help you expand your footprint through e-commerce, partnering, franchising, acquisitions, debt and equity fundraising, concessions or other routes to market. Most importantly, we invest in building a long-term relationship and provide insight and guidance to help make your retail business a success.
