Sheppard Mullin’s Art and Fashion, Mergers and Acquisitions, and Social Media Essentials New York Fashion Week Legal Seminar

Sheppard Mullin Ricther & Hampton, LLP is one of the few firms in the USA that specializes in fashion law; representing brands like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton among many. The firm puts on really useful legal seminars for fashion law practitioners and industry professionals each New York fashion week season. For this fall, they’ve got an upcoming seminar definitely worth checking out; the details of which you will find below.

I particularly like that social media is becoming a common topic at fashion conferences and now fashion law seminars. I believe for both fashion law and fashion industry professionals, we live in exciting times and the three intersection of fashion, law and technology can only raise really intriguing, innovative opportunities for all; and of course let’s not forget the inevitable litigation.
