Retail and Consumer Goods
The global consumer goods industry faces new challenges through changing consumer behaviour and digitalisation. We advise our clients on the complex legal issues that result from this, on M&A transactions and joint ventures, on competition and trademark law issues, and on e-commerce and contract design. We also advise on all data protection matters, especially in relation to customer data. We also advise on questions of product safety and provide support in international product recalls.
Trademarks and brands
Sales and marketing
We cover all major issues relating to sales and distribution. We advise on current major issues and provide support for cross-border large-scale projects. These include, for example, advising on (international) selective sales and distribution and conditions systems, the introduction of new sales and distribution channels, online sales and e-commerce, compliance issues, sales cooperations, the negotiation of framework sales and distribution contracts, and disputes with commercial agents and sales and distribution partners in an international context.
