Fashion Lawyers in NYC Representing Designers, Manufacturers, Distributors & Importers

For years, fashion designers, manufacturers and retailers have gravitated to New York’s Fashion District. That is a crucial reason why our offices are located in the heart of the Fashion District in NYC. For over two decades, our firm has brought a special focus to the practice of representing the people and businesses who are active in the Fashion and Garment Industry. In some ways, these businesses are similar to other businesses that we represent. We advise them on business structuring and agreements, shareholders and operating agreements, employment agreements, manufacturing, agency and sales agreements. But the unique nature of this business makes an expertise in its nuances invaluable in advising its participants on legal matters.  

Over the years, our fashion lawyers have advised hundreds of designers, manufacturers, distributors, importers and other fashion and garment industry related businesses on how to develop their businesses and protect their ideas. The creative aspect of this industry is the key to success, and those creative and original ideas require special protection. You need more than just a typical business lawyer to protect your interests in this often-gray area of the law. As a top fashion law firm in NYC, Einbinder & Dunn services the fashion industry in many areas including:

  • Intellectual property matters, including trademarks, design patents, trade dress, copyrights and licensing;
  • Non-Competition, Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements;
  • Transactions – encompassing acquisitions, financing, dissolution and sale of businesses, as well as mergers, investment and development agreements;
  • Structure & Organization – structuring and reorganizing advice and the drafting and negotiating of corporate and business agreements for entities of every kind. Such agreements include operating, shareholder, partnership and joint venture agreements;
  • Employment Agreements;
  • Formation – covering the formation of limited liability companies, corporations and partnerships;
  • Operations/Management Issues – including distribution, supply, employment and licensing agreements, as well as all forms of contracts necessary for the operation of an ongoing fashion or garment concern; and

Michael Einbinder & Mackenzie Dimitri successfully moved to compel their adversary to produce tax returns, in a shareholders’ dispute over four related entities, three of which operate franchises in the New York City area. The court ordered Plaintiff in that case to produce the tax returns, or to supply an affidavit stating the documents were not in Plaintiff’s position and provide Defendants with IRS Form 4506 so that Defendants could attempt to procure the tax returns directly from the IRS.

Michael Einbinder and Mackenzie Dimitri successfully defeated a preliminary injunction motion, seeking dispositive relief against their clients, the owners of three quick service restaurant franchises and a related entity. E&D attorneys argued the motion sought relief not sought in the underlying action, and was otherwise legally deficient. Moreover, the facts of the case, even at the preliminary injunction stage, favored E&D’s clients. The court agreed with E&D, holding, critically, that, in addition to being legally insufficient, the opposition could not meet its burden of showing it was likely to succeed on the merits of any of its claims. The court’s opinion adopted E&D’s clients’ statement of the facts and all legal theories.

Michael Einbinder, Terrence M. Dunn and Richard Bayer represented a restauranteur in a recently closed million dollar convertible debt financing transaction.
