We want to support Made in Italy in the world. Fashion is still the symbol of Made in Italy in the world. Some of the most important international successes of Italian design were born in the Eighties as an effect of courageous and pioneering business projects by young designers who have been able to impose their brand and build a commercial network able to adequately support the diffusion of own products on an ever-larger scale. Today, in a much more selective and complex market than at that time, relying on an experienced lawyer in this sector has become a key success factor particularly in the business start-up phase, but also subsequently during the entire life of the company. Think of a manufacturer or licensee of a fashion brand that intends to launch a process of internationalization.
The assistance of an international business lawyer, who thoroughly understands the specific problems of the sector, is a decisive element for the success of the business purpose. To launch a fashion brand, make it grow, consolidate the acquired market positions, delocalize one or more branches of the company abroad or export its products, we need a rigorous planning in the legal field: the negotiation and the accurate and complete drafting of licensing, distribution, joint-venture agreements, the protection of know-how and of the brand, the protection of industrial design, the prudent management of selective distribution chains, the correct setting of export-related problems, are just some of the aspects that require the intervention of an expert lawyer. The Di Francia Law Firm was born when Made in Italy was already a consolidated reality and licensing was the resource to allow the creativity of young Italian designers to access, even without a large availability of capital, into a market in full growth. Today, the Firm counts among its Customers fashion brands, agents specialized in the marketing of fashion brands, emerging companies and designers.
