RETAIL & CONSUMER PRODUCTS
As digitization continues to revolutionize traditional business models, fundamentally transforming customer interactions and transactions, a well-defined strategy for navigating the digital economy is a necessary part of doing business. This includes evaluating unique ways to reach consumers, such as through native advertisements, bloggers, vloggers, brand influencers, and online contests – where it’s not always clear what is within the bounds of applicable consumer protection regulations.
Businesses that deal with retail and consumer products have to be very mindful of copycats and counterfeiters, and other threats to the valuable intellectual property that makes their business unique. Whether you are a traditional retailer, manufacturer, an outsourced service provider, or distributor, understanding the legal issues associated with driving sales and revenue in the innovation economy, is as important as the commercial drivers.
