Consumer Products Lawyers

As a player in the consumer products sector, you face a myriad of challenges such as globalisation and digitalisation, environmental and health concerns, supply chain management, consumer and media pressure, growing retailer buyer power, the rise of online selling and counterfeiting. All place new demands on your management and business strategy but also drive the need for legal advice. Our pan-European team is structured around the key sectors of consumer products including cosmetics, clothing, electronics, health & beauty, food & drink, retail, household equipment and manufacturing. Whether you are a supplier, investor, regulator or other stakeholder, we have consumer products experts to help, whatever your situation.

In order to give you the targeted legal advice your business needs, our teams have experts from every legal area affecting your sector. This means we can guide you on all legal and regulatory aspects − from the financing and acquisition of companies, through to antitrust and unfair competition law, media management, nutritional and health claims, advertising and marketing, strategies for the protection of intellectual property rights, data protection, outsourcing, distribution agreements, real estate transactions, product recalls and much more. Our experts will keep you abreast of the latest sector insight and developments, giving you a commercial, as well as a legal, edge.
