Taylor Wessing publishes legal guide to the UK consumer products sector
This guide shares the key trends that we are seeing in the UK consumer products sector and how these trends are shaping both the questions we are being asked by our clients and the advice we are giving. At the start of each chapter there is a boxed text highlighting our pick of the trends and hot topics relevant to the chapter.
While the sector is diverse and continually evolving, we have seen some consistent themes and have drawn together the key legal issues. This guide will be of interest to companies across the consumer products sector, including fast-moving consumer goods, retail, and food and drink.
Taylor Wessing has advised half of the world’s top 100 brands. Our clients range from start-ups to household brands, and from manufacturers and producers to distributors, retailers, e-tailers and technology providers.
