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.

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 or in marketing new products. These include changes in product manufacturing, product formulation, warnings and labeling requirements, “green” advertising and recycling or recall requirements. Pierce Atwood attorneys can help you understand and comply with the latest regulations that can affect you and your business. Please visit our Product Regulation & Chemical Safety Experience page for more information.

Please contact Gloria Pinza to learn more about our practices serving clients in the retail industry.

Pierce Atwood assists its clients to vigorously defend class actions on the merits, to challenge class certification where appropriate, and to navigate the complex class litigation process.
