The Luxury & Fashion Industry Group of Baker McKenzie is ready to conquer the most pressing challenges in one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, as it holds the 2015 Luxury & Fashion Industry Forum on Wednesday, 1 April 2015.

Join us as we highlight key legal insights on the industry developments in the Asian region, which will be most relevant to your respective business strategies. The industry itself, which is also one of the most popular industries Tokyo is known for, has overcome recessions and financial crises, proving its resilience in the global market. There is much more to learn, like contemporary legal conflicts that may arise following robust initiatives that key industry players commonly encounter in the international arena.

Topics for Discussion

Technological advances, ethical codes, globalization, and the battle with counterfeit products are just some of the unique challenges of the Luxury & Fashion industry. Fortunately, there are newly discovered legal strategies that are proven more effective to navigate through these challenges.

Banking on this confidence, here are some of the key topics in this seminar that have shaped today’s game in luxury and fashion:

  • Power of Big Data – data usage and protection and what to do in the event of a breach
  • Social media advertising – issues in new media platforms and cross-border data transfer
  • Dispute resolution mechanisms – emerging IP issues in the wake of 3D print technology and luxury counterfeits
  • Leasing negotiations in Japan

The Luxury and Fashion Industry Group hopes to assemble the best and brightest business minds to unravel the most precious gems behind the most talked about industry in the world today.
