Fox Williams and UK Fashion & Textile Association are conducting a seminar on Thursday 21 September, 4.00pm – 7.00pm. The following is a message from them:
In conjunction with the UK Fashion & Textile Association (UKFT), we are hosting a joint seminar at UKFT’s office highlighting key issues fashion businesses need to know about in today’s market.
The topics we will cover include:
Pop-ups – what are the issues you need to know about?
Legal director, Rebecca Facey, explains the pros and cons of pop-ups for fashion brands, shares our top tips for negotiating the terms of your agreement, and tells you what you need to consider when the agreement ends. Rebecca will also look briefly at some of the implications for UK brands taking part in pop up activity outside of the UK.
Directors’ responsibilities and liabilities – what to do when your company is facing bankruptcy in an unpredictable financial climate. As a director can you be pursued and sued?
Senior associate, Sarah Carlton, outlines the legal responsibilities company directors have and potential personal liabilities that exist when a company is heading towards insolvency.
Getting paid – what do brands and suppliers need to know when it comes to getting paid.
Partner, Stephen Sidkin, highlights the issues which are key given today’s financial climate.
The discussion will be led and chaired by partner Stephen Sidkin and UKFT’s director of international business, Paul Alger.
After the formal presentations, there will be a Q&A session followed by networking drinks.
We do hope you can join us.
