Our firmwide Retail Industry Group brings together our significant and accumulated industry knowledge across many practice areas in order to meet the evolving issues that challenge the retail industry. Such areas include litigation, business and finance, real estate, labor and employment, intellectual property, product liability, and evolving Internet and e-commerce issues. This interdisciplinary focus provides our clients with value-added benefits and efficiencies that result from an ongoing, dedicated industry focus.
Currently, more than 400 of our attorneys represent more than 300 retailers of all types in all types of different matters. Our bench strength is deep and our collective experience is broad. On a daily basis our Retail Group focuses on the emerging issues that challenge this industry as technology, globalization, and privacy issues, among others, increasingly intersect. We understand the retail industry, but our first commitment is that which we make to every client: to understand your specific business objectives and to serve as a "trusted advisor," keeping the broader company needs in focus at all times, as well as the specific matters for which we may be engaged. By leveraging the global resources of our firm, the strengths of each practice area, our vast geographic presence, and many client-service-centered technologies, we are well positioned to meet the needs of our retail clients wherever and whenever they arise.
