Retail and Consumer Products - Emerging and High Growth Companies

Canada is full of innovative companies that want to modernize the traditional retail sector. From improving data analytics to creating smoother supply chains and better online experiences, there are many emerging and high-growth companies that are bringing game-changing tools, technologies and products to this rapidly evolving sector.

Successful companies will need to stay on top of the many rules and regulations that govern this sector, including consumer protection and competition laws. They may need guidance on a range of issues, including labelling and packaging, intellectual property, marketing and promotion, cross-border commerce and more.

Osler’s team can help emerging and high growth operations excel in all these areas. Through our “one firm” approach, we help quickly growing operations secure series round financing, gain access to angel investor networks, develop IP strategies, identify expansion opportunities and negotiate key contracts. Many of our clients have gone from start-up operations to global businesses.

With the retail sector’s evolution likely lasting for many years, there’s no shortage of opportunities for emerging and high growth companies that have the right strategy and trusted advisors in place.
