Our Fashion Law Capabilities

You have a dynamic vision that will push boundaries and allow your company to mature and thrive. You need a team that will journey with you to the edge of what’s possible and help you push beyond. In every corner of the industry, we work with brands, designers, manufacturers, investors, content providers, technology developers, creatives, and influencers, guiding your company through emerging industry trends, market forces, legal challenges, and business opportunities.

Whether you are looking to engage IP counsel or developing litigation strategy, tackling manufacturing and supply chain issues, addressing labor and employment or corporate concerns, or resolving regulatory issues, our team has the depth and breadth of experience to offer comprehensive legal and practical business solutions for every phase of your creative vision and unique needs.

Tailored Counsel for the Fashion Industry

If your brand, idea, or content is your most valuable asset, we can help. We provide counsel on all matters related to the development, creation, protection, and enforcement of intellectual property, including trademark, copyright, patent and advertising, helping to safeguard the value of your business and steadily develop, protect, and grow your brand. If you’re facing a dispute that requires IP litigation counsel, we regularly represent brands in litigating intellectual property disputes involving trademarks, trade dress, false advertising, cybersquatting/domain names, unfair competition, patents, content, trade secrets and copyrights in a variety of federal district and appellate courts, as well as international tribunals. We also understand the value of intellectual property in the context of business transactions, including financings, IPOs, influencer and promotion agreements and licenses.

If you have manufacturing and supply chain issues, we can help. We assist with the creation of a new idea to the distribution, delivery, and consumer use of the final product, plus everything in between. Factors such as demand, cost, sustainability, supply chain, sourcing, and consumer preferences are likely at the forefront of your business decisions. We stay ahead of manufacturing trends and challenges to equip our clients with the tools necessary to meet consumer demands efficiently and effectively.

We have an in-depth and nuanced understanding of the regulatory issues your company can face. We regularly represent brands before federal and state agencies and work with you on regulatory compliance counseling.
