Retail & Wholesale

Our retail team has what it takes to assist retailers and wholesalers with their most critical projects.

Wholesale and retail businesses are sophisticated, efficient and highly cost-conscious. Success in the field means constantly striving to become ever more efficient by finding new ways to lower unit costs.

Our lawyers can advise on anything from restructuring supply chains and making the most profitable use of intellectual property assets to the legal intricacies of franchising and brand management. Financial restructuring and equity issuances are also some of our areas of expertise.

Clients tend to consult us for critical advice—major restructuring, transactions or disputes—especially if there are novel elements. For example, we acted in a case involving changing a retailer’s company structure from a limited company to a cooperative, which raised complex tax issues.

We also consult on cross-border aspects and consolidations burdened by competition issues. Our international experience, offices and network of contacts across the world help make transactions run as smoothly as possible.
