In the fast-changing world of fashion, our Clients must be poised to adapt to markets and address the challenges arising from the seasonal nature of collections and releases.
To this end, CBA assists its Clients in drafting and negotiating contracts with designers, suppliers, manufacturers and distributors, and other arrangements such as, among others, franchising, co-marketing, corner shop, shop-in-shop and flagship store contracts, design services agreements, trademark and design license agreements, identifying any critical issues in advance.
CBA advises important casual, prêt-à-porter and haute couture fashion manufacturers, as well as manufacturers operating as service providers and principals of their own brands.
The team carefully assesses industrial law matters involving the protection of creativity, trademarks and designs, offering the most effective solutions to fight counterfeiting and parallel trade.
Developing franchising networks across markets requires medium-term consulting projects to be drawn up for both of their setup or re-modulation phases.
Our team is well equipped to prepare fit-for-purpose agreements, handle corporate organization matters and provide domestic and international tax planning. Over the years, CBA has provided extensive consultancy in respect of the organization of events and sponsorships as well as in specific litigation matters involving the relationships between stylists, as the brand owners, and their licensees.
