            Retail

            From adopting new technology to driving down costs, offering new delivery models and giving customers more for less, retailers are faced with an unprecedented pace of change.

            From farm to fork, factory to front door, our expert sector team advises on a full range of legal disciplines and retail regulations. Whether consumer channels (including website and mobile app development, licensing and end-user terms and conditions), executive contracts, remuneration levels, exits and board disputes, single site developments, complex international multi-site, multi-use developments or working with regulators and government departments, as well as the media, to shape future legislation. We want to reduce risks, create opportunities and build sustainable, innovative strategies for success.

            DWF is the most popular law firm that FTSE 100 retailers currently turn to.
