The world of fashion has been our playing field (or our specialist area, area of expertise, working area or discipline) for many years. That experience has given us in-depth knowledge of the ins and outs of the fashion sector and of the legal aspects involved. Our clients include major fashion brands, established designers and start-ups, producers, private label suppliers, commercial agents, distributors, retailers, franchisors and franchisees.
We assist our clients from the creation of a design to the protection of a design or trademark, both in and out of court. We provide prompt, creative and high-quality advice and legal assistance – to make fashion work!
Our legal assistance goes beyond litigation and advice: we also organise workshops and courses for our clients in the fields of intellectual property rights and fashion, and assist them when they launch new collections and brands.
We are affiliated with MOAM and House of Denim, organise guest lectures at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and regularly publish in FashionUnited and Sport Partner.

Our ICT, E-commerce and Privacy team will be pleased to assist you, regardless of the phase you are in.
Since they involve at least three parties, flexible employment relationships are more complex than traditional employer-employee relationships. There is also relatively little case law in this field, since the Wet werk en zekerheid (Work and Security Act), which provides a legal framework for flexible employment relationships, entered into force only a few years ago.
Working as an independent business owner under the name of a larger group offers great advantages. But the collaboration between the two parties can be complex. Franchisors and franchisees profit from each other’s strengths, but also have mutual obligations.
