In the consumer and retail sector, customers come first.

We have worked with some of the world’s biggest retailers and consumer brands, providing on the ground support to help them expand into emerging markets, and supporting their journey as they transition from traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ to multichannel market platforms.

  • Lion Group, one of Australia’s leading food and beverage businesses, across a broad range of commercial matters
  • Six of the lead underwriters for the New York Stock Exchange listing of Chinese e-commerce retail powerhouse, Alibaba
  • Myer, a major Australian department store operator, in relation to the establishment of its operations in China
