Retail & Leisure

At Charles Russell Speechlys, we can help your retail brand seize commercial opportunities, succeed in new markets and attract new generations of consumers. We’ll support you throughout the lifespan of your business.

The retail sector has undoubtedly faced considerable disruption in the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have been on hand to support businesses as they dealt with the immediate crises. As lockdown begins to ease, businesses now face different challenges, with various ‘return to work’ procedures in place to ensure that staff and customers remain safe when reopening. If you have been affected by the pandemic, or would like to speak to our team about the easing of lockdown restrictions, please get in touch with Edward Craig or visit our COVID-19 hub page for more materials and support.

Building a successful retail business is hard enough with all the legal issues that come from a changing workforce, expanding premises and an increasingly regulated sector. Add to this the need to embrace new technologies, deal with threats from counterfeiters and the ever present need to stay one step ahead of the competition - we know that you have your work cut out.

From luxury, high street to food and drink, our knowledge of the law and how it works in the retail sector comes with a deep understanding of your business. Our people often go on secondment to our clients. Walking a few miles in your shoes gives us a shared perspective, an eye for what really matters and the ability to help you stay in front.
