About Streathers

Streathers is a growing, boutique London law firm that helps businesses in the footwear industry navigate the key legal issues they face across all stages in their life cycle, from setting up a new footwear business and initial fundraising right through to business sales and exits.

We love building long term relationships with growing businesses and becoming their trusted strategic adviser, including advising one young but fast-growing footwear supplier on more than 50 different projects over recent years.

Our team of dedicated and experienced solicitors regularly advise footwear businesses on the following specialist areas:

Commercial contracts – including international distribution, wholesale, manufacturer, franchising and research collaboration relationships and online Ts & Cs and loyalty programmes.

Mergers & acquisitions – including business purchases, share sales and other corporate transactions.

Joint ventures & partnerships – including shareholders’ and partnership agreements, equity and structured investments and other forms of fundraising or restructuring.

Commercial property – including commercial leases, assignments, sub-leases, freehold sales and development agreements.

Employment – including managing employment contracts, issues, redundancies and disputes.

Lastly, as part of the personal service we offer, we will take the time to learn about your business, your strategy and objectives and any challenges that you may be encountering.

The BFA is run for and by our members – by becoming a partner you join a network of some of the foremost businesses within the UK footwear sector. Whatever business products or services you are marketing, BFA members are always keen to adopt that which enhances their business, makes their operations more efficient or increases their profits.

The BFA hold regular networking events and themed webinars, where we encourage partners to take the reins and showcase their businesses and services to our membership. We also enable partners to have an input in what we say to the Government and we ensure they receive Whitehall’s responses first-hand.
