Apparel & Fashion

Russ August & Kabat knows the apparel industry. The firm has represented a virtual who’s who, from start-ups to major branded household names. We represent manufacturers, importers, private label makers and retailers. We understand the apparel business because we are in the apparel business. Indeed, the head of our apparel group is one of the owners of American Rag and World Denim Bar, consistently voted one of the top ten retail stores in the world.

Russ August & Kabat understands that developing a successful apparel enterprise is all about brand building. We provide counseling and legal services relating to trademarks, copyrights, trade dress, patents, licensing and a wide array of other services related to running a successful apparel business. The firm regularly handles the prosecution and defense of copyright, trademark and patent infringement matters. On occasion, the firm represents clients on a hybrid or contingency fee basis, assuming the amount in controversy is sufficient to warrant such representation.
