Overview

The luxury industry is sophisticated and dynamic. Strategy is crucial and timing is everything. In this digital age when opportunities and threats can arise at a moment’s notice, you need a legal business partner who understands your company’s objectives and can navigate you through the unique demands of the luxury industry.

Since 1984, Barack Ferrazzano has been a trusted legal advisor to some of the most respected and iconic luxury goods companies in America and around the world. Notably, since 1987 we have acted as principal U.S. counsel for Paris-based Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, a world leader in luxury goods.

For decades, Barack Ferrazzano lawyers have been immersed in the business and legal aspects across luxury industries, including fashion and accessories, watches and jewelry, wines and spirits, cosmetics, fragrance and skincare, motor vehicle and hotels/hospitality. Our experiences, combined with our diverse and talented attorneys, allow us to craft unusually practical, creative, and effective solutions to complex challenges exclusive to the luxury industry, which is instrumental to our domestic and international clients’ prosperity.
