Today’s health and beauty companies face intense challenges and competition that require that managers have access to the right legal advice. Failure to factor in changes to the competition regime, whether in the UK, EU, or globally, can seriously damage a company’s growth plans.
Then there is the issue of corporate governance and, more broadly, corporate social responsibility. Employees, consumers, shareholders, business partners and the broader public are operating to an increasingly complex social agenda, where brands can be seriously damaged by a single false move and where governments are responding with increased regulation and guidance.
