Whether it is helping to facilitate the optimal capital structure and raise capital, structuring national and international mergers and acquisitions, advising on corporate governance matters, or responding to a hostile bid, Williams Mullen devotes our most sophisticated resources to meet the needs of our retail clients. In addition to our corporate capabilities, clients benefit from our ability to improve profitability through tax, gift cards and escheat planning; register, protect and defend valuable intellectual property rights; help them provide effective defenses for employment collective and class actions and optimize national and international supply chains. Our lawyers also represent private equity firms specializing in maturing national retailers at the pre-IPO stage.

As recognition of their knowledge, our lawyers have been invited to speak on environmental compliance and sustainability, customs and international trade and lease cost recovery topics before various National Retail Federation (NRF) committees and at the organization's Global Supply Chain Summit and at National Retail Tenants Association (NRTA) annual conferences. We have authored articles on the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) and information governance for The North Carolina Retail Merchants Association’s (NCRMA’s) newsletter, The Retailer, and have spoken on the ADAAA at a Carolinas Food Industry Council (CFIC) Annual Convention.
