Introducing Attention to Retail: our retail law webinar/seminar series

19 November 2015

Managing your brand, protecting your designs, establishing secure commercial arrangements and dealing with disputes, along with day-to-day employment, financing and property matters, are riddled with legal and regulatory complexities.

Our specialist team provides bespoke advice to high profile businesses and entrepreneurs in the dynamic and competitive retail and leisure sector. We have a genuine understanding of the sector, with many of our lawyers having been seconded to work in-house with clients.

We are delighted to announce the launch of Attention to Retail, a regular series of webinars and seminars considering topical issues in retail law.

Each webinar will last one hour including polling questions and time for individual questions posted by attendees. A recording of the webinar along with the PowerPoint presentation and any reference materials will be made available to download from our website after the session.
