A commercial, multi-disciplinary group focused on providing straightforward legal advice for restaurants, retailers, and leisure businesses.

The growth and adoption of new technology, an uncertain economic environment and fast changing cultural values mean that the future of retail has never been less secure.

The consequences for those not adapting to the new landscape are acute. You only need to look at the raft of former industry stalwarts who were too slow to respond and paid the ultimate price. To cope in the new world requires a clear strategy and nimble advisers who understand what's at stake.

Whether you’re a fledgling entrepreneur, an established business owner or part of a large corporate team, you need an adviser who’s seen and done it all. Someone who can handle the rapid pace of change and help you stay on course and ahead of the competition.

Hotels, restaurants, high street retailers and luxury brands all rely on us for no-nonsense guidance on doing business. That’s because we understand that even the smallest things have an immediate impact on bottom line results.

We can advise you on every aspect of your operation. People and property, IP and regulatory, funding issues and corporate transactions. And through our extensive industry network, we’ll connect you to the right people as you move through the business lifecycle.

You’ll have a team behind you that’s easy to work with. Who speak the language of retail and leisure. Whatever you’re experiencing they’ll have experienced it before. And whatever the latest trends, they’ll help you make the most of the opportunities and avoid the pitfalls.
