Legal Issues in

Retail Environments

Course Description
Explore the trending legal issues impacting the retail environments industry, including:


  1. Privacy Rules – The GDPR, California Consumer Privacy Act, and biometric privacy regulations are significantly impacting how retailers deploy technology in both the brick-and-mortar and online settings. Find out what retailers and their suppliers need to know about these regulations.
  2. Leveraging Intangible Assets – Recent studies have shown that as much as 85% of enterprise value is driven by intangible assets (e.g., patents, trademarks, trade secrets, and know-how). To maximize long-term enterprise value, it's critical to understand legal strategies for maximizing these assets.
  3. Protecting Customer Relationships – Businesses often suffer significant setbacks from the departure of a key employee with sensitive company information or a key customer relationship. Learn what you can do to protect yourself from these risks.
  4. Bankruptcy Strategies – With the uptick in retail bankruptcies (e.g. Sears, Toys R Us, Brookstone, The Walking Company, etc.), suppliers in the retail industry need to be proactive to minimize losses in the event a customer files for bankruptcy protection.
