Tomorrow morning (Thursday, April 25), from 11:15 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. there will be a panel discussion at the Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle on “Legal Protection in Fashion.”
Because so much clothing and footwear is being made in China and Southeast Asia, there will no doubt be discussion regarding fashion companies protecting themselves in those countries. Adding to this lack of doubt is the fact that one of my firm’s lawyers, Rachel Buker, will be on the panel. Rachel focuses her practice on IP work and much of that involves helping fashion companies that are doing business in China and elsewhere in Southeast Asia.
Rachel will be joined on the panel by the following people:
- Patricia Raskin. Ms. Raskin founded Anne Sylvain, a luxury leather goods company and as if that were not enough, she is also a lawyer who speaks Mandarin.
- Lisa Vian Hunter. Ms. Hunter is a fashion designer and the owner-operator of Vian Hunter’s House of Fashion
- Chad Smith, Moderator. Mr. Smith is an IP attorney and an Adjunct Professor at Seattle University School of Law.
