Our experts sit at the coalface of the enormous transitions occurring in the retail sector, helping clients grapple with the most pressing issues of the day from omni-channel through to logistics and fulfilment. We are one of the few firms to fully support each element of the retail value chain – from the factory all the way to the shop floor (or the customer’s front door).

We support retailers on their factory and warehouse projects. We advise them on the hugely complex technology, logistics and transportation contracts that underpin how goods reach shops and customers. We help them manage their vast store portfolios. We get them online. We get them digitised. We help them navigate the rules that govern customer engagement.

The CMS retail group is one of the only law firms who can join the dots and support you across your entire value chain. We are already trusted by some of the top retailers in the market, like Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Dune Group, Yoox Net-A-Porter, and French Connection.
