The First Edition of Hannes Snellman Fashion Law Review is Here

15 January 2020

We are excited to publish the first edition of Hannes Snellman Fashion Law Review. The purpose of this publication is to highlight interesting cases and trends within the fashion industry in the Nordic countries and Europe, and to give you, as a designer, brand owner, or retailer, a chance to learn more about what legal aspects to take into account when growing and expanding your business within fashion.

In this edition, we will examine recent EU-level initiatives to strengthen consumer protection especially in the context of e-commerce. We will also discuss the consequences imposed by new emerging trends, such as renting clothes, sustainability awareness, and tech innovations and its effect on the fashion industry. We have written an article on data protection, addressing recent case law development within the EU regarding e-commerce platforms, plugins, and the responsibility that in some cases is triggered for website owners. Finally, we will discuss new possibilities and challenges that influencer marketing may entail for advertisers.

Hannes Snellman’s retail and fashion lawyers provide innovation and flexibility in an increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment. Our legal experts will guide you proactively with thoughtful business planning and creative strategies to address emerging legal issues facing the retail and fashion industries.

We hope you enjoy the first edition of Hannes Snellman Fashion Law Review!
