Fashion and Beauty

We advise national and international fashion, beauty and luxury goods clients in established and emerging fashion capitals around the world on the many and varied challenges they have faced.

Wherever our clients are, and whatever their size and scale, they are affected by supply chain pressures, the speed at which technology transforms the market, the goal of greater sustainability, the impact of a new generation of consumers on shopping habits and discussions around increased diversity and inclusion.

Our experts thrive on the pace of change in this dynamic sector and ensure our advice is practical, commercial and future focused.

Our expertise includes:

  • The full range of funding solutions, including early stage financing, venture capital and private equity investments, listing on the stock exchange, bank lending and other debt finance.
  • Setting up, expanding, buying, selling and restructuring businesses, companies and brands.
  • Protecting the intellectual property of brands, designs and products.
  • Commercial agreements of all kinds, including for manufacturing, distribution and collaboration.
  • Accessing and trading in the on-line marketplace.
  • Real estate law, including leases, planning permissions, environmental requirements and property taxes.
  • Guiding clients on all aspects of employment law, including contracting, workforce reorganisations, D&I initiatives and court and tribunal claims.
