Retail and consumer

We understand that the rapidly changing face of retail means balancing a physical and virtual presence. You need a legal team with a proven track record for flexible, creative collaboration, as well as a commitment to delivering success.


Our specialist retail lawyers have an extensive understanding of general consumer behavioural trends and individual customer preferences as well as influencing disciplines such as manufacturing, logistics, real estate, procurement, supply chain and regulatory issues, to support at each stage of the retail life-cycle.

We adopt an integrated approach towards tailoring solutions to your business needs, providing legal, commercial and strategic advice across a wide range of services including:

  • Corporate and commercial matters – tax, banking and competition
  • Dispute resolution – on areas including supply chain, and employment for example
  • Data and information law – privacy, continuity and cyber security
  • Insurance, risk and liability - product safety, recall and liability, food safety, health & safety, employer’s and public liability
  • Real estate – planning, development, construction and asset management
  • Regulatory – compliance and investigations
  • Technology – applications, licensing, outsourcing and data analytics

Whether advising from one of our UK bases, or across our international offices, we apply this experience and expertise to help you make an informed response to new opportunities and approaches. Most importantly, we’re committed to your success, whether handling business-as-usual or special projects. We provide both ease of access for you and the flexibility to ensure that the right advice is delivered by the right team at the right price.

In addition to the above, our Corporate Insurance & Risk (CIR) is a division of DAC Beachcroft, created to service and manage liabilities and risk for corporate clients with specialist capability in retail and consumer. See our Corporate Insurance & Risk page for more details.

What our clients say

  • …feedback from across the board was overwhelmingly positive. Underwriters will start to work through our data in the next couple of weeks, but they do so with a loud message [thanks to DACB Corporate Insurance & Risk] that risk management tools are market leading and that claims performance is up to YoY.
