Mishcon Academy: Digital Sessions are a series of online events, videos and podcasts looking at the biggest issues faced by businesses and individuals today.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a turning point for the restaurant industry, with many operators having pivoted in new directions, re-thought strategies and re-invented themselves to stay in the market, as well as significant changes in restrictions continuing to affect the sector on a daily basis.
In this session, held prior to the Government's announcement of a second lockdown in England, our panel of industry operators and experts discussed how restaurants are adapting to this new reality, the shift in relationships between landlord and operator, how the industry now needs to focus on a purpose beyond just profit, and what we can expect of the M&A/investment outlook within the sector. Please get in touch with a member of our Hospitality & Leisure team, or your usual Mishcon contact, if your business has been affected by the latest Government announcements since this panel was recorded.
The panel, chaired by Corporate Associate Leanne Maund, comprised: George Bukhov, Co-Founder, Burger & Lobster restaurant group, Petra Barran, Founder, KERB, Darrel Connell, Partner, Imbiba and Payam Keyghobadi, Partner DSW Corporate Finance.
This live session was held on 12 October 2020. All information was correct at time of recording.
