Retail and leisure

Retail is dynamic and fast paced but the current economic climate is piling on the pressure and demanding unprecedented levels of change. We have a dedicated team of specialists who understand the need for speed, flexibility and determination to navigate through negotiations and achieve the right result for our clients.

We cover the full range of retailers’ legal needs from property/portfolio management, leases, franchising, mergers, acquisitions and sales to employment, immigration and dispute resolution.

We work with many well-known retail brands, including Muffin Break, Cambria, Giggling Squid and Menkind. We have been involved with many brands from inception and remaining with them as they grow and expand.

Terry Fendt has over 25 years’ experience in retail and property work. He is respected by clients ‘as he gets the job done and doesn’t waste time being over legalistic’. Mike Lewis heads the property management and contentious side. He has spent the majority of his career at Clyde & Co where he acted for retailers such as Carphone Warehouse, Zara, Miss Sixty and Five Guys.
