Legal Solutions for Retail

As a true partner, we understand the complex retail landscape and help to achieve your commercial goals.

Talk to us

The retail landscape is always evolving — arguably at a faster rate now than ever before.

With retailers embracing technological advancements, responding to changing consumer behaviours, driving the ESG agenda and adapting to the cost-of-living crisis, it’s vital to have a true legal partner on your side to withstand the challenges and take advantage of opportunities as they develop — a partner that understands the complex retail landscape and can help to achieve your commercial goals.

Our retail team works closely with the UK’s largest retailers across beauty, fashion, leisure and hospitality, food and drink, automotive and health.

Our services

We provide the full spectrum of legal services for the retail sector, including advising on commercial contracts, data protection and cyber security, employment and HR, pensions, corporate transactions and restructuring, branding, intellectual property and reputation management, real estate portfolios, charitable foundations and environmental responsibilities.

We also undertake contentious work through our specialists in commercial and real estate litigation, as well as contentious intellectual property and regulatory matters.

Our expertise

Our retail team is led by experienced Partner and real estate litigator Helena Davies, who acts for many household name retailers. 

As the UK’s largest law firm to achieve B Corp status, we're committed to driving positive change — and Helena’s focus on the sustainability challenge for retailers is bringing various retail leaders together to share best practice and help educate and inform on purpose-led business and the ESG agenda.

Brabners’ retail team truly understands the complex retail landscape. We have worked closely together on Primark’s ongoing significant investments in new and existing UK stores. Highly responsive and commercially minded, Brabners helps us to find solutions and achieve our aims.
