Consumer Products Lawyers

For manufacturers and retailers alike, success in the consumer products sector means driving innovation as well as facing the myriad challenges that come with changing regulatory frameworks, competitive pressures, new technologies, and engaging in emerging markets.

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.
