FW Lawyer speaking at UKFT Seminar on Agents and distributors in Fashion

February 26, 2014

Fox Williams with UK Fashion and Textile Association will be holding a seminar on Wednesday 19 March designed specifically for fashion, accessory and textile businesses in the UK. This interactive seminar will give you up to date information to enable you to take on and work with agents and distributors.

Agents and distributors can be good routes to market, whether in the UK or overseas. It is extremely rewarding when agents achieve great sales or distributors place large orders. However, should either relationship become acrimonious, it can be costly in terms of management time, stress, and legal fees.

Stephen Sidkin chairs the Fashion Law Group at Fox Williams LLP. He and members of the Fox Williams agentlaw team will explain:

  • what your obligations are,
  • how you can protect yourself, and
  • what to do if things go wrong.

Having worked in menswear, Stephen is an avid believer in the power of brands and advises many fashion principals and agents, as well as suppliers and distributors. In the recent case of Charles Shearman v Hunter Boot Limited, where Stephen led the Fox Williams’ team for Mr Shearman in his claim under the Commercial Agents Regulations, the judge described Fox Williams as specialist lawyers.
