At Mishcon de Reya, we understand the power of brand. Our multi-disciplinary Luxury, Fashion and Retail Group combines the skills of our Intellectual Property practice with those of our Commercial, Competition, Corporate, Employment, Real Estate and Reputation Protection practices, collectively offering industry leading knowledge and an operational understanding of a retail business. Whether you are an individual or a business acquiring a property, employing staff, developing a brand, protecting your business or negotiating with your suppliers, we can advise you. Our aim is to help our clients to maximise the value of their assets – whether this is their brand, their property, their people or their reputation – as well as to ensure that those assets are protected.
Our knowledge extends across the retail and the consumer goods and services sector from the high street to the world of luxury, from supermarkets to fashion outlets. And our clients range from entrepreneurial start-ups to iconic fashion designers and well-known retailers including Christian Louboutin, Kering Group (Gucci), Arcadia Group and Tesco.
We are invested and involved in the luxury, fashion and retail industries, helping to further the aims of both well-established and up and coming brands. Our association with Walpole, a non-profit-making organisation that furthers the interests of the British luxury industry, grants us access to and the ability to form relationships with the UK’s most prestigious brands.
