Retail & consumer

The retail experience for customers is being transformed by a convergence of changing technology and demographics, ethics and sustainability

This evolving landscape can open new opportunities and markets to retailers who are ready to be inspired by change and think differently.

Having worked for decades with some of the biggest and most iconic names in retail – including IKEA, Hamleys and Boots – as well as with some of the sector’s most exciting new entrants and disruptors, the Shoosmiths retail & consumer team has a vast bank of sector knowhow to inform its advice to clients and make it on-point and relevant.

At the heart of the sector team’s approach is commerciality - the ability to map between the legal issue at hand, and the ‘real’ competitive market you operate in. This may include a radically changing high street, rising privacy and data issues, increased regulatory compliance, environmental concerns, health & safety risks and consumer-driven litigation.
