Taking Stock Autumn 2016 - Consumer Products Bulletin

United KingdomScotland

I am delighted to attach the latest edition of Taking Stock, our consumer products and retail law bulletin. This publication explores recent legal developments in the consumer sector which should be of interest for in-house legal and business teams alike.

In this edition, we have four articles covering the following:

  • Health regulation and whether we need a more holistic approach than just a singular focus on sugar
  • Dividend payments and how directors should approach these when potentially large liabilities may be looming
  • Drafting effective retail leases when the lines between physical spaces and online continue to blur
  • Unfair contract terms and the recent finding that too few businesses grasp these fully

If you would like to discuss any of the issues in this edition of Taking Stock or wish to provide any feedback, please feel free to contact Tom Scourfield or the author of the relevant article.
