It has been an extraordinarily challenging 18 months for many of the high street brands in the retail and leisure industry as the sector struggles with shutdowns and quarantine restrictions, as well as the uncertainty of Brexit. The Covid-19 global pandemic has dislocated supply chains, closed economies, reduced operating capacities and threatens to change the high street forever.
With the UK having left the EU in December 2020, retailers are having to navigate the implications to their supply chain, the lack of free movement of people, new UK and EU regulations, updating of commercial contracts and macroeconomic changes.
Retailers are having to seek new and creative ways to maintain their competitive edge as restrictions are forced and consumer buying habits continue to alter.
In support of this market, B P Collins LLP has a dedicated cross-practice team that provide specialist sector focused advice to clients that operate in retail and leisure industries, particularly those involved in food, fashion, entertainment, hotels, restaurants, warehouses and gaming services.
Our multidisciplinary team of lawyers maintain a focus on delivering customer service and value whilst providing both day-to-day and transactional advice to clients in this multifaceted sector.
Consisting of employment, real estate, dispute resolution and corporate lawyers, we are well placed to provide cost-effective legal services in all areas of employment law (including TUPE), legislation affecting retailers, portfolio management and property finance, debt collection and franchising, technology and IP rights.
