Fladgate’s luxury law team, sponsors of the Sustainability Award at the Luxury Law Awards 2017, congratulates Kering on winning the award. The Luxury Law Awards are designed to recognise the skills that it takes to guide a luxury business or brand to profitable success and the legal teams who stand behind the best luxury business leaders.
Kering, which is the owner of global sport and lifestyle brands including Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Gucci and Puma, has launched a new long-term sustainability strategy for its luxury brands following a one-year fact finding process. The strategy is one of the most wide-ranging and ambitious to emerge from the global apparel industry, incorporating the entire supply chain, starting from the design process. The company has taken active steps to achieve the highest social and environmental standards in its sectors and through this, influencing the industry as a whole.
Fladgate’s chairman, Charles Wander, commented: “Luxury law is a core part of Fladgate’s business, whether transactional, IP, employment, tax, contractual or contentious. With an established track record of expertise and success in this field, our lawyers deliver exceptional service characterised by robust, commercial and technically expert advice. For its leadership on promoting sustainability, Kering deserves this award.”
The award was presented by Fladgate partners Antonia Brandes and Mythily Katsaris.
