Consumer Goods & Retail
Participants in the consumer goods and retail industry have to deal with a wide variety of legal obligations, including those related to intellectual property protection, consumer rights, data protection matters, e-commerce regulations, and more. An inflationary operating environment, market saturation, population growth, and more-discerning-but-less-loyal consumers all pose significant challenges to companies in the sector seeking to grow and maintain profit margins.
