As the economy's retail sector continues to grow both physically and virtually, so does the need for legal services from a firm that understands this highly competitive economic environment as well as the practical considerations and constraints faced by retailers. We have a strong history of advising clients in the retail industry in areas such as business formation, marketing, branding, privacy and data security, outsourcing, e-business, state and local taxation, employment, consumer credit, intellectual property protection, dealer and distributor agreements, litigation, land use permitting, product regulation, and real estate, including leasing and contaminated property issues.

Retailers face an increasingly complex and multi-layered regulatory environment at the state and federal levels. Whether in the areas of product regulation, privacy, advertising, environmental compliance, employment, or beyond, staying apprised of continuous regulatory change wile remaining focused on running a company is a challenge. 

And with the proliferation of state and federal laws regulating the materials and chemicals in virtually every product on the market, retailers and their customers are particularly vulnerable when there are changes to those regulations. Legal and regulatory changes can necessitate changes in product manufacturing, product formulation, warnings and labeling requirements, advertising practices, recycling,  recall practices, and more. Pierce Atwood attorneys can help you understand and comply with the latest regulations that can affect you and your business.
