Consumer Products

Spain

The consumer products sector is facing endless challenges such as globalisation and digitalisation, as well as those brought by environmental and health issues, supply chain management, media and consumer pressure, the increasing negotiation power of retailers, increased sales and online piracy. This places new demands on companies with regards to their management and business strategies, hence requiring specialist legal advice in the quest for solutions. 

Our expert Consumer Products team specialises in sub-sectors such as cosmetics, textiles, electronics, health and beauty, food and beverages, retail, home furnishings and industrial equipment, among others, comprising professionals from all legal practices which affect each sector. We advise clients on all legal and regulatory aspects from the financing and acquisition of companies to antitrust 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. Our vast sector expertise enables us to keep our clients up to date with the latest market information, providing not only a commercial advantage but legal benefits as well.
