The Global Legal Post today launches the second edition of the Law Over Borders online Fashion Law guide.

Edited by Julia Holden, a senior partner at Milan-based firm Trevisan & Cuonzo, Fashion Law features contributions from an array of leading firms from across the world, providing answers and insight into the law around the business of fashion in 20 key jurisdictions.

It includes guidance on the effective legal protection of brands, the rules around e-commerce and marketing and how to navigate sustainability guidelines.

The easy-to-use digital format allows readers to quickly assess how different jurisdictions tackle common issues by comparing contributing authors’ answers to a series of carefully framed questions.  

Contributing firms include: Griffith Hack (Australia), ASTREA (Belgium), Mansur Murad Advogados (Brazil), Castrén & Snellman (Finland), Casalonga (France), Kroher Strobel (Germany), Tailored: Law & Business in the Fashion & Luxury Industry and Sinanides and Sinanides (Greece), Bird & Bird (Hong Kong, Singapore and Spain), Remfry & Sagar (India), DFMG Solicitors (Ireland), Costinica & Asociados (Mexico), The Africa Fashion Law Services (Nigeria), LexNovia (Taiwan), Tilleke & Gibbins (Thailand and Vietnam), Shoosmiths (UK) and Debevoise & Plimpton (US).

In her introduction, Holden writes that the fashion industry is being impacted by “increasingly pervasive digitisation, growing environmental awareness and the centrality of consumers, to the increasing regulatory environment around advertising, particularly as a consequence of the surprisingly significant power harnessed by fashion influencers”.

She adds: “Along with the more traditional legal topics, these new ‘hot’ issues have also been addressed with the same practical and factually-based approach that distinguished the first edition as a relevant and accessible resource.”

The print version of the guide will be officially launched at Luxury Law Summit London, which takes place at the British Museum on 11 June. Click here to read the guide online and here to pre-order the print and pdf versions, which will be available in April.
