Retail and Consumer Goods Corporate Representations

Weil provides cross-disciplinary advice and counseling to all parties involved in the retail and consumer goods sectors, including public and private retailers and manufacturers, their boards and board committees, as well as investors. We regularly advise on all aspects of their businesses and operations, including transactional matters and related issues, brand management, intellectual property, advertising, distribution and pricing policies, product issues and recalls, privacy and other consumer protection statutes, environmental issues, disputes with suppliers, competitors, employees, and consumers, tax structuring, and other issues. We also regularly advise retailers and manufacturers in financial distress, in both out-of-court and court-assisted restructurings.
