Fashion Tech

The global multibillion dollar industry of fashion is being transformed by technology.

For example, consumers concerned with sustainability might find the yarn of their clothing made from recycled materials or dyed using sustainable fabric-coloring technologies that reduce the environmental impacts of apparel manufacturing. Fashion is ripe for disruption and transformation, taking everything from design, fabric development, manufacture, delivery to the way in which consumers shop on digital channels.

We have decades of experience advising brands and designers. We also have a dedicated technology practice, advising companies, entrepreneurs and investors at the forefront of technology disruption and innovation, ensuring their intellectual property and market changing products and ideas are protected globally.

Our breadth of knowledge and expertise in both the technology and fashion sectors allows us to successfully and expertly advise clients on all matters protecting their innovation, sustainability, technological evolution, creativity and integrity. Our dedicated teams represent both emerging companies and entrepreneurs as well as recognised and respected industry veterans in all matters from company formation, equity investments, loan capital, restructuring, investment negotiations and advice, intellectual property rights protection as well as shareholder disputes, tax advice and employment advice.

Withers tech have been with us through thick and thin. I trust them completely. They are so in-twined in our business. I see it as a personal relationship.

I see Withers tech as more of a sparring partner than my lawyers. We spend time thinking through different scenarios and discussing how certain decisions could positively or negatively impact the future of Meatable, and this process crystallised our priorities. Sharmela finds the exact right balance between being the ‘formal lawyer’, and being pragmatic and thinking proactively.

We at Lexicom Technology pride ourselves on our technical expertise and our transparent client relationships. Withers have been key advisors since our inception in 2006. Over the years they have provided invaluable advice to our growing business, representing us on both commercial and private client matters and over a wide range of subjects ranging from domestic property law to international commercial negotiation. They are eminently approachable and always extremely responsive to our enquires. In any arena they have provided a consistently substantial upper hand. I cannot recommend them enough.
