RETAIL, WHOLESALE & CONSUMER GOODS

Retailers, wholesalers and consumer goods manufacturers operate in a challenging, competitive and constantly changing commercial and regulatory environment; today more than ever. With disruptive market trends, changing consumer behaviour such as the shift from traditional 'brick and mortar' shopping to e-commerce, as well as increasing price pressure, you need a multi-disciplinary team experienced in dealing with the issues at stake.

Our lawyers can not only provide you with in-depth industry knowledge on a local and international level, but can also support in all key aspects of your business: from regulatory compliance and commercial issues, to brand management, pricing and marketing strategies, e-commerce and data protection. Of course, we can also help you with issues such as the best way to finance your expansion plans, the ins-and-outs of strategic takeovers and mergers, the cross-border posting of employees, unfair competition or abuse of dominance claims, and managing real estate portfolios.

Our team consists of experts in all relevant legal areas, working closely together to offer you tailor-made solutions. You benefit from our experience advising clients throughout the sector; from luxury brands to food and beverage producers, from high street retailers to operators of shopping malls. Over the years, we have successfully advised on some of the region's largest deals in the sector, earning us top rankings in international legal directories.
