Looking to attract investment or to sell?

Thinking of attracting investment to expand or as a step to taking some money off the table or simply to selling and heading off to Bali is always attractive. But it is important to be aware of the current market, choose your timing carefully, and appreciate how an investor will look at your business.

Andrew Jakins, founder and partner, Highstead Partners tells you what are the current trends for fashion owners looking to attract investment or sell and the key deals taking place.

Using social media in today’s market?

Fashion businesses are at the forefront of using social media – and in encountering problems in such use: whether it is a question of fake Instagram accounts, postings being copied, or fake reviews.

Pushing the seams on designs?

Urban myths continue to do the rounds not least because it is claimed that as there are “no new designs, a claim of infringement is nothing to worry about”. But urban myths are just myths.

Simon Bennett, specialist IP partner, Fox Williams tells you what you need to know to ensure that you are not caught out.

How will your use of personal data measure up?

The start of the new data protection regime is fast approaching. But still many businesses have failed to take steps to ensure that from May 2018 they will comply with the General Data Protection Regulation.

Nigel Miller, specialist data protection and cybersecurity partner, Fox Williams tells you what you need to know to ensure that you are not caught out.

Chair: Stephen Sidkin, partner and chair of Fashion Law Group at Fox Williams LLP.

The seminar will be lively and there will be a great opportunity to network with others from the fashion industry.
