Fashion and luxury goods

Fashion is all about keeping pace with rapidly changing styles. The need to design, manufacture and distribute products that are on-trend (as well as ethically made and environmentally friendly) can create challenges for designers, suppliers and retailers. Today, anything can be tweeted in the blink of an eye, so registering trade marks is vital to protect goodwill and brand value. And if your brand or product is copied, then litigation is far easier when you have registered rights to rely on.
