Those who own, run and invest in luxury brands and assets understand the power of a name that stands the test of time. With a rich heritage of our own, and our recent inclusion in the roll call of Great British Brands by Country & Town House alongside the likes of Aston Martin and Burberry, this is a world we understand.
We have many years’ experience advising national and international luxury brands in industries as diverse as clothing manufacture and retail, food and drink, and sports. We advise brands themselves, those employed by them and those who invest in them.
We work with luxury brands at every step of their journey from registering trademarks and protecting intellectual property to securing and structuring finance, and exit or sale. Specialists across the firm support our clients on complex employment law issues, immigration challenges – set to become more acute as Brexit progresses – and on commercial contracts, property transactions and disputes of all types.
Your brand’s reputation, whether that of the company as a whole, or senior individuals within it, is a vital part of its value. Our disputes and reputation management specialists regularly work with clients to resolve potential problems, linked to anything from supply chain and contract issues to the management of adverse publicity issues or even property disputes. Alongside, our data protection experts are increasingly working with luxury brands to prepare them for and help them deal with the latest regulatory changes – an area becoming ever more complicated for companies that hold customer information.
In our services to those seeking to invest in luxury brands and assets, we combine extensive experience advising high net worth individuals, families and private investors of all types with effective commercial execution. We are a firm with a long tradition of exceptional client service and, over the years, we have evolved to make sure we continue to offer the sophisticated blend of cutting-edge expertise that those within the luxury sector need today.
Our longstanding connections with advisers, businesses and investors across the sector often prove of great value to clients, and in partnership with some of the UK’s most prestigious brands, we regularly bring people together at our networking and professional development events.
