Consumer Products and Retail

Urbanization, rising disposable incomes, rapid internet penetration across the country and the convenience of shopping via E-commerce sites is transforming the way manufacturers of consumer products engage and transact with customers. Brands must be adequately protected from spurious lookalikes. Various players will need to enter into complex supply chain agreements that cover various payment options, last-mile delivery and reverse logistics to support “returns”. Disputes may arise over product specifications, service, unauthorized credit card usage or even online purchases by minors. There could also be issues around taxes. Brick-and-mortar retailers too will need to effectively mitigate the typical risks associated with buying or leasing real estate in India as they expand.
