Retail and Fashion

We have a strong track record of advising retailers and fashion designers across the range of commercial, corporate, property and dispute resolution matters and helping to grow, protect and re-gear their businesses in an ever changing economic climate.

We work with high street stores, online retailers, luxury brands as well as fashion start-ups and help these businesses respond to current challenges such as what a multichannel strategy might mean for a business, not least around data protection issues, employment considerations and property portfolio management.

A significant focus of our retail practice is on property acquisition and estate management considerations, and we are working with a number of our clients to realise a concerted growth strategy.  We also advise across the full range of contentious issues that retailers and fashion businesses encounter.
