Members of our Luxury, Fashion & Retail team recently attended the Luxury Law Summit Europe, which took place at the British Museum in London.
As sponsors of the Summit we were delighted to be part of a fantastic line-up of high profile speakers exploring global trends in luxury. Our panel session, titled “Sustainability, no longer a luxury”, was moderated by Bird & Bird Partner Karen Friebe, who was joined by Vincent Marot (Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group) and Ben Godon (Colliers). The panellists discussed how luxury businesses should be prioritising their environmental and social impact to meet consumer expectations and drive growth, and shared how they and those they work with are implementing sustainable policies and practices to re-shape the future of luxury.
The day ended on a high for the Bird & Bird team at the Luxury Law Awards, where we were thrilled to win the Luxury Law Firm of the Year Award in recognition of our leading expertise in this sector. The Awards are judged by ten individuals against a number of criteria, including evidence of legal expertise and innovation, team working, client satisfaction and a commitment to ESG. The judging panel commented on our team’s expertise in tech, our collaborative approach and ability to offer innovative solutions to our clients.
Our Retail & Consumer group includes experts in the luxury sector across each of our international offices. If you would like to speak to one of our team-members and find out more about our experience working with luxury businesses, please do get in touch.
