B.A.F.F.L.E.D. Fashion Law

Business and Legal Tips for the Emerging Designer--

Just this past Friday, I got the magnificent opportunity to sit on a fashion law panel, hosted by the Fashion Law Society at John Marshall Law School in Chicago.  It was a great event, and now the 3rd time I've presented at one of their Symposiums.  Always a great time.

As I, and the 3 other attorneys on the panel took questions, we were asked everything from the best way to set up a fashion business, to the means for protecting a brand once it's up and running.  We gave many tips and cautions, but it reminded me of the information right here to share with designers and brand managers for protecting what's rightfully yours.  

Here are some of the tips we've shared in the past.  Take a look, and let us know what else you'd like to see.
