WWD Names Arent Fox a Top Retail Practice
Arent Fox’s Fashion Law group was recommended as one of the best retail practices in the country by WWD, which encouraged retailers to call on the firm’s attorneys when faced with issues that threaten their bottom line.
The article focused on the rise of knockoff and infringing fashion products, as issue that is occurring at an alarming rate in 2017. “Every month, shoppers spend billions (yes, billions) of dollars on counterfeit versions of designer goods and with social media’s ability to create a fervor over so many things, fashion chief among them, the knockoff industry is set to keep growing,” reported WWD.
