Specialist advice

We have experience advising on specialist areas that directly impact businesses operating in the industry, including in relation to food regulation in the UK, particularly concerning food product liability, labelling and allergen laws.

We are highly experienced in the fields of brand protection, advertising and marketing. In particular, we advise some of the country’s (and World’s) most prominent food and beverage brands on the protection and enforcement of the intellectual property rights globally.

In addition, we work with businesses in the Food & Beverage sector to help them navigate environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and the associated rapidly evolving risks, supporting them to think sustainably and beyond compliance and to take advantage of the commercial opportunities of responsible business in a changing world.

We work with clients to understand their ESG targets and connect them with lawyers who are able to help scrutinise the processes and policies in place to achieve them. You can access our ‘Doing Business Responsibly’ brochure for Food & Beverage brands, here.

The team at Charles Russell Speechlys understand our business and the key risks we face on a day to day basis. They are a great sounding board and continuously seek to partner with us and provide support and dedication as we grow our brand
