We advise clients on all legal and regulatory aspects from the financing and acquisition of companies to anti-trust and unfair competition, media management, claims relating to health and nutrition, publicity and marketing, strategies for the protection of intellectual property rights, data protection, outsourcing, distribution agreements, property transactions, product withdrawals and many more.
