Taking Stock: Current legal issues affecting the consumer products and retail sectors


Welcome to the latest edition of Taking Stock, our consumer products and retail law bulletin. This publication explores recent legal developments in the consumer products sector which should be of interest for in-house legal and business personnel alike.

In this edition, we have four articles covering the following:

  • An update on disability awareness and creating a diverse workforce to influence consumers’ brand perception;
  • An overview of the Consumer Rights Act and its impact on consumers and businesses;
  • Recent government measures requiring major beneficial owners of UK companies to be publicly identifiable; and
  • The impact of the circular economy strategy on consumer products companies.

If you would like to discuss any of the issues in this edition of Taking Stock or wish to provide any feedback, please contact Tom Scourfield (Head of Consumer Products), the author(s) of the relevant article or your usual contact at CMS.
