Consumer Products

SA&M attorneys have heralded experience representing consumer products companies in corporate, M&A, intellectual property, employment, operational, and litigation matters. Our lawyers work with both private and public venture-backed, emerging growth, middle-market apparel and fashion, beauty care, home furnishing, food, and electronics companies, as well as investors, venture capitalists, investment bankers, and underwriters that require legal counsel to help navigate the consumer products’ rapidly changing and highly competitive landscape. Our number one objective is to help our clients operating in this space to succeed, whether it be scaling growth, overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles, or bringing or fending off lawsuits that protect or threaten their brands.

Hiring proven legal counsel is necessary to build a foundation and grow in the consumer products market. Our recognized practitioners routinely aid clients throughout every stage of growth, anticipating what might happen next based on our decades of experience handling these types of matters. SA&M attorneys provide advice and counsel on business formation and structuring, mergers and acquisitions, contract negotiations, corporate finance and secured transactions, e-commerce protection,  licensing and franchising, factoring, restructuring, unfair competition, and litigation and dispute resolution, among others.

When faced with litigation, we represent clients in general business, antitrust and competition, labor and employment, insurance, contract, false advertising and marketing, consumer privacy, class action, and warranty matters, among others. Sometimes, through effective negotiation, matters can be resolved without ever stepping foot into a courtroom. Our lawyers leverage their relationships and acumen to settle disputes using arbitration and mediation, however, sometimes both sides are so far apart that ramping up for trial is necessary. When that occurs, our consumer products litigators are ready to go to the mat to protect our clients’ interests.

Individuals and companies doing business in the consumer products market trust SA&M attorneys to employ their collective experience to craft sophisticated, innovative solutions to even the most challenging legal and business issues in order to advance short and long term client objectives.
