The digitisation of global retail — with RPC

Thursday 30 September, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

Legal Cheek is partnering with the international law firm RPC for a virtual student event on the fast-moving retail industry and the lawyers that specialise in this area.

RPC acts for a wide range of global retail brands, as well as many of the digital platforms that are now so central to their success, and is playing a key role in helping its clients navigate the forces of technological disruption that are re-shaping retail. The firm is also regularly called upon to advise retailers and brands on the legal and regulatory implications of changing consumer sentiment on issues such as sustainability and ESG. Retail is one of the five core areas the firm has committed to grow over the next five years and invest in recruiting top talent.
