DLA Piper's retail sector team is recognised for offering commercially sound advice across the full range of legal issues affecting those participating in the retail market


Consumer Goods and Retail

The retail sector is being driven by increased growth in consumer spending, attracting a mix of developers, international and local retailers, fashion brands, investors and financiers. We are focused on providing advice based on in-depth sector knowledge, local experience and international best practice.

For businesses looking to expand into new product lines or territories, protect their brand and IP, understand the consequences of changing consumer spending habits, or comply with the regulatory regimes in all the jurisdictions where they have a presence, we can help.

The retail sector is subject to rapid consumer-led change. Evolving customer tastes, the rise of e-commerce and the economic environment all have an impact on your business. Therefore, you require lawyers who, like your sector, are dynamic in their approach and commercially orientated when it comes to results.

As retail continues to cross borders, our global capabilities and experience means that we can add real value to your business. So whether you are looking to expand by acquisition, raise additional finance or ensure that your existing brands and operations are protected and legally compliant, we can help.
