We are a young and dynamic law firm, based in London; commercially aware, entrepreneurial in spirit, international in outlook and pragmatic in approach. We are dedicated to providing direct selling and multi-level marketing businesses with high quality, pragmatic, cost-effective legal advice.
Our direct selling team is headed by Jonathan Riley who has been a leading adviser to the UK direct selling industry for the last 30 years as well as advising the Direct Selling Association on some of the industry’s key legal issues during that time from consumer rights to online recruitment procedures.
The direct selling businesses we advise range from the largest listed companies operating globally to new start-ups. We keep all of our client advice confidential, but we apply our wealth of experience for the benefit of all of our clients – if you have a novel problem then we have probably seen it before!
Our advice includes preparing and compliance checking distributor contracts and compensation plans, customer sales terms and marketing materials, distinguishing self-employed from employee status, distinguishing health claims from medicinal claims, and planning and implementing international expansion projects.
Our lawyers are frequent public speakers and industry advocates and we have recently participated in DSA and industry events in London, Brussels, Paris, Washington and Dallas. We have excellent relations with other industry professionals across the globe and we are always happy to make those resources available to our clients.
Our direct selling team enjoys the support and resources of the rest of our full-service London law firm to provide a comprehensive legal service to the direct selling industry including business sales and purchases, corporate structuring and business planning, equity and debt funding, promotional and marketing campaigns, and ICT and logistics contracts.
