The expert hand with the human touch

As a leading full-service law firm, we support a wide range of clients across the food and drink sector with expert legal advice and financial planning.

We have a dedicated team of industry experts across 15 UK offices, committed to working closely with our clients in a cost-effective way to meet the needs of their business.

Our ever-growing portfolio has seen us work with organisations of all sizes – from farm to fork. We offer legal support based on our client’s needs, in particular:

  • Supply chain and other key contract negotiation and dispute resolution
  • Intellectual property and reputation management support
  • Product safety and regulatory investigation.
  • Corporate M&A and governance support
  • Real estate advisory.

Our expertise of the food and drink industry is further supported by our knowledge of the wider manufacturing sector. We recently produced a series of cutting-edge reports on the impact of COVID-19 on the supply chain and UK economy, and Industry 4.0.

These are challenging times. But with us by your side, you’ll have the confidence of knowing your legal obligations are in hand and under control.
