Miller Thomson’s Retail Group has enhanced its services and reach for 2013, in time for what
promises to be an active year in the retail sector as Canada
continues to factor into the expansion plans of many international retailers.
The group, led by Savvas Kotsopoulos, offers a “one-stop shop”
approach to legal services addressing the varied needs of existing, expanding
or new retailers looking set up shop in Canada. Members of the Retail Group include experts
in real estate, labour and employment, immigration, business law, franchising,
corporate finance, intellectual property and trademarks, privacy, supply chain,
tax law, insurance, advertising, marketing and regulatory issues and
construction. Experts are also found in most of Miller Thomson’s 11 offices
across the country, allowing for a broad knowledge–and reach–that covers
Canada’s retail landscape.
“This one-stop approach distinguishes Miller Thomson from other law
firms in Canada,”
say Kotsopoulos. “We have the national and regional strength to provide
seamless support, guidance and counsel.”
The group has an extensive advisory and transactional track record
supporting domestic and international retailers — whether new entrants or
well-established. Its multi-disciplinary
retail industry specialists offer clients top-quality advice in virtually every
area affecting the retail industry, including cross-border issues, commercial
relationships, strategic growth and divestments, international brand
management, and commercial and regulatory compliance matters.
