During the Covid-19 pandemic, the retail sector suffered a damaging blow with thousands of shops disappearing from high-streets across the UK. Retail businesses have had to adapt quickly with many finding online alternatives to keep their businesses afloat. Retail businesses that operated online before the pandemic saw a surge in sales as consumers flowed to online shopping. 

However, whether retail businesses operate solely online, on the high-street or a mixture of both, business owners will face similar challenges in the form of high customer demands, recruiting and upskilling its workforce, keeping up with technological advances and maintaining brand loyalty.

It is important to work with lawyers that understand the day-to-day challenges of owners of retail businesses.

  • Selling and buying retail businesses (including online retail)
  • Employment law advice
  • Terms and conditions
  • Supplier and distribution agreements
  • Partnership, shareholders’ and LLP agreements
  • GDPR and privacy
  • Commercial property
  • Disputes
