Our expert practitioners provide specialist intellectual property, employment law, and commercial contracts advice to leading companies in this sector.  Our clients rely on us to advise on product development, contract negotiations, securing investment, entering overseas markets, acquiring a competitor, protecting their brands, labelling, and complying with food law and environmental regulation.   

We provide comprehensive and strategic advice, both at the pre-litigation stage and in contentious and non-contentious cases, in relation to the anticipation and management of risk, product recall and crisis management strategies.   We also advise on regulatory breach, enforcement proceedings, product safety and liability, nuisance, environmental breach and on any associated litigation.
