Few things move as fast as the fashion industry. Yet even in this intensely creative industry, some things never change. There’s a constant need to protect ideas and secure the most advantageous trading arrangements. It’s a fiercely competitive market where survival and success depend on making the right call, at the right time.
Ideas are your greatest asset
The most pressing need is to protect your intellectual property: the unique ideas that make your business what it is and give it a truly distinctive difference, from design concepts to branding and trademarks. Then there are all the commercial issues relating to getting your products out to market and to your customers. Drawing up agreements for trading partnerships, manufacture, supply and distribution, to name just a few.
