Consumer Products lawyers

CMS is one of the few firms to fully support each step of the consumer value chain. From the factory floor all the way to the shop door (or the customer’s front door). We help consumer facing companies create, deliver, and sell their goods, protecting their innovation and market position every step of the way.

We support our clients on new manufacturing and research and development projects. We protect their hard-earned IP and valued brands. We advise them on the hugely complex technology, logistics and fulfilment contracts that underpin how goods reach shops and customers. We help them manage vast store portfolios. We help get them get online, selling D2C. We help them get digitised and make the most of adtech. We help them navigate the rules that govern product safety and customer engagement. We protect them when crises hit, or prevent them altogether. We help them grow through transformative partnerships and M&A.

Our expertise is reflected in the clients who trust us with their most sensitive and strategic matters. We work with top FMCG companies like Nestlé and Unilever, leading retailers such as Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Dune Group, and Yoox Net-A-Porter, and top fashion and luxury brands including French Connection, Barbour and Stella McCartney.
