Fashion Lawyers in NYC Representing Designers, Manufacturers, Distributors & Importers

For years, fashion designers, manufacturers and retailers have gravitated to New York’s Fashion District. That is a crucial reason why our offices are located in the heart of the Fashion District in NYC. For over two decades, our firm has brought a special focus to the practice of representing the people and businesses who are active in the Fashion and Garment Industry. In some ways, these businesses are similar to other businesses that we represent. We advise them on business structuring and agreements, shareholders and operating agreements, employment agreements, manufacturing, agency and sales agreements. But the unique nature of this business makes an expertise in its nuances invaluable in advising its participants on legal matters.  

Over the years, our fashion lawyers have advised hundreds of designers, manufacturers, distributors, importers and other fashion and garment industry related businesses on how to develop their businesses and protect their ideas. The creative aspect of this industry is the key to success, and those creative and original ideas require special protection. You need more than just a typical business lawyer to protect your interests in this often-gray area of the law. As a top fashion law firm in NYC, Einbinder & Dunn services the fashion industry in many areas including:

  • Intellectual property matters, including trademarks, design patents, trade dress, copyrights and licensing;
  • Non-Competition, Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements;
  • Transactions – encompassing acquisitions, financing, dissolution and sale of businesses, as well as mergers, investment and development agreements;
  • Structure & Organization – structuring and reorganizing advice and the drafting and negotiating of corporate and business agreements for entities of every kind. Such agreements include operating, shareholder, partnership and joint venture agreements;
  • Employment Agreements;
  • Formation – covering the formation of limited liability companies, corporations and partnerships;
  • Operations/Management Issues – including distribution, supply, employment and licensing agreements, as well as all forms of contracts necessary for the operation of an ongoing fashion or garment concern; and
  • Litigation – covering matters related to breach of contract, business torts, unfair competition, trademark disputes, business dissolution disputes, real estate, employment agreements, non-competes and non-disclosures, financing, shareholder disputes and bankruptcy. We represent clients in all courts, state and federal, as well as arbitration and mediation.

Whether you are a start-up designer looking to establish yourself in the marketplace, an established manufacturer or distributor of an established line, or a licensee or licensor of a new brand, our fashion lawyers in NYC have worked with someone like you and will understand your needs.
