Foley & Lardner LLP recently co-hosted a roundtable discussion on Utah’s fashion industry with Utah Business Journal.
Featuring Foley partner Laura Ganoza and leading Utah fashion industry leaders, roundtable attendees discussed supply chain difficulties, customer engagement, positive social impact, and more. In the Utah Business Journal article summarizing the discussion, “Roundtable: Utah’s fashion industry,” Ganoza explained the value to global-thinking Utah Businesses of building a diversified supply chain.
“In terms of risk, [it] lessens the risk of manufacturers ripping off your designs, intellectual property, and things like that,” Ganoza said. “If you don’t have control over where items are being manufactured and they’re being manufactured abroad, you end up losing some of that because when they’re not working for you, they’re working for somebody else.”
