Retail, Hospitality & Leisure
The retail, hospitality leisure sectors live or die by consumer tastes, brand loyalty and spending power, all of which can fluctuate dramatically on a regular basis.
The revolution we’ve seen in recent years, fuelled by new technologies which has altered buying patterns and opened up competition, has forced businesses to constantly adapt and find new ways to reach out to customers, drive sales and defend their businesses and brands.
Divergent trends abound, such as the rise of experiential retail vs the boom in e-commerce, or fast-fashion vs artisan products. The need for sector-savvy legal expertise to guide businesses through these complexities has never been greater.
