Protecting confidential information in the fashion industry

Fashion and confidential information will be the main topics of the lecture to be held on May 23, 2016 by Marella Naj-Oleari at the University of Milan.

Fashion companies often deal with confidential information that need to be regulated not only in the relations with employees but also in agreements with suppliers, distributors and agents. The secret could involve both “technical” and “commercial” know-how, such as the composition of a new fabric, the design of a collection, company marketing plans, client lists and pricing information.

The protection of tradesecrets and know-how is a matter of great importance in the fashion market and their misappropriation could be the subject of highly-regarded litigation, as recent cases Puma, Nike and Cartier reveal.
