Consumer Products

Ukraine

Consumer products is one of the fastest growing sectors in CEE. For many years we have helped leading international and domestic brands establish a presence in the region and to grow and protect their business successfully. Our advice is informed by an in-depth understanding of the sector and covers all critical opportunities and challenges for your business, including globalisation, online marketplaces, supply chain management, growing retail buyer power and increasing consumer pressure and media scrutiny. All place new demands on your management and business strategy, but also drive the need for commercially astute legal advice. Whether you are a supplier, investor or other stakeholder, we have sector specific experience in transactional, regulatory and contentious matters.

Our international team is structured around the key sectors of consumer products including cosmetics, clothing, electronics, health & beauty, food & drink, retail, household equipment and manufacturing. We provide a comprehensive legal and regulatory service 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 more. Our experts will keep you informed of the latest sector insight and developments, giving you a commercial, as well as a legal, edge.

Our Ukrainian team advises on commercial contracts, corporate transactions, banking, tax and customs matters, and other issues relevant to the sector.
