Consumer Business

The impact of Brexit, rising costs, changing consumer behaviour and disruptive new competitors are all unpredictable and challenging factors for the future of the retail, leisure and hospitality industries. We take the time to get to know you and your business, providing market insight and innovative strategic advice to help your business turn these challenges into opportunities.

Pressure on consumer businesses has never been higher with rental, staff, pension and fuel costs all on the rise and causing a further squeeze on margins. But with technology radically changing the way people spend their money and providing innovative new ways to access, understand and profile your customers, we can help you capitalise on new developments and trends to give you an edge over your competitors.

We know that the consumer business sector doesn’t just begin and end with selling products and services. Property, manufacturing, logistics, intellectual property, data, brand, finance, HR and IT are all huge considerations for any ambitious consumer business. As one of the UK’s largest full-service law firms, we have expert solicitors who can share in-depth knowledge and experience in each of these areas and more.

We have specialist expertise in:

  • Retail
  • Leisure
  • Hospitality

We have a truly global reach with a strong network of relationships with established firms situated in the key territories around the world. Whether you are branching out into new markets or are based overseas and looking to invest here in the UK, we can support your expansion from start to finish.

As members of the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and the British Brands Group (BBG), we have access to an excellent array of nation-wide resources within the consumer business sector. We can pass these benefits on to you and keep your business one step ahead of the competition.
