The retail & leisure market is fast moving and speed of response is a key factor in our service delivery. Our advice is given with an understanding of the current market and is always commercial. We don’t follow trends, we create them; for example with our ground-breaking litigation funding structures. We inform discussion on a full range of retail issues such as food safety and regulatory changes, directors’ duties and the problems affecting UK High Streets.
We have the skills and experience that comes from advising a wide range of retail businesses over many years – from stand alone stores, to large retail chains and international brands. We have particular strength in advising high street retailers and fast food restaurant businesses and our client list reflects this, including Burger King, Brandon Hire, Fat Face and Fred Perry. We are also recognised for our real estate and intellectual property retail practices and are proud to show how we have helped some of our clients in our retail case studies.
We would welcome the opportunity to show you how our advice can add value to your retail & leisure business.
