The retail sector is currently undergoing a revolution as many companies turn their attention away from the saturated domestic High Street towards the challenges presented by internationalisation and multi-channel approaches to the market.

We are acknowledged market leaders in both the re-engineering/ internationalisation of retail businesses and the creation and management of multi-channel ways to market. We advise retailers on their entry into all major foreign markets including the likes of India, China, Russia, Japan, the Middle East, Australasia and both North and South America as well as the EU.  This, together with our acknowledged leadership in brand management and protection, makes us well qualified to support retailers as they compete aggressively for their share of these new markets.

We have developed a wide range of experience in this field and have advised a wide range of leading household names. We provide advice across the full range of retail demands.

We also advise on the ongoing health and safety, estate management issues and commercial matters which are vital in order to maintain the commercial effectiveness of the business run from our clients' properties.  These include matters such as the Disability Discrimination Act, Asbestos Regulations, environmental health and planning issues.
