Fashion and design houses, apparel manufacturers, retailers and some of the world’s most prominent luxury goods companies rely on us to protect and grow their brands.
Corporate Transactions and Counseling
We advise retailers and apparel manufacturing companies of all sizes on issues such as business formation and structuring, joint ventures, franchising concerns and M&A transactions. We also design intelligent legal solutions which address a range of key areas, including manufacturing, distribution, branding, labeling, copyrights and trademarks, licensing, anti-counterfeiting, import and export compliance and other regulatory concerns.
Litigation and Employment Law
We represent clients in complex commercial disputes, and the full range of employment litigation and counseling concerns, including defending against FLSA and other prevalent class actions in the industry, and advising on executive compensation, employee benefit and compliance issues.
We have negotiated millions of square-feet of leases for prominent banks, drug stores, clothing stores, restaurants and virtually every other type of retail location throughout New York City, and across the country. We also frequently advise retailers on their corporate real estate, construction and zoning concerns, as well as in retail condominium transactions, billboard and signage matters, and complex real estate disputes.
