Luxury Law Summit Highlights
Year after year, The Luxury Law Summit provides a unique opportunity for general counsel and lawyers specialising in advising luxury brand owners and businesses to focus on the sector’s very particular challenges and opportunities.
This year´s edition brought together luxury business leaders, designers and entrepreneurs with their legal advisors for presentations, discussions and networking sessions that were designed to provide actionable business solutions. Our delegates joined the event to find out what those directing international strategy for their luxury brands are looking for from their legal support teams.
