Kouretchian Joins Leading Lawyers in Esteemed “Inside the Minds” Thompson Reuters Series

ENCINITAS, CALIFORNIA, November 18, 2014 – Seyamack Kouretchian, Managing Partner at Coast Law Group, LLP is one of only eight leading attorneys across the country contributing to the 2015 edition of Navigating Fashion Law, an authoritative, insider’s perspective on developing, protecting, and expanding fashion brands in an ever-evolving marketplace.

The chapter featuring Kouretchian, Issues for Sports Apparel Clients and Lawyers, highlights a variety of crossover issues, such as social media , licensing-related issues, intellectual property protection (both domestically and abroad), and compliance with an increasing regulatory environment. Not only does Kouretchian provide a timely synopsis of these issues, but he includes straightforward advice for attorneys and emerging sports apparel brands.

“I’m honored that a leading publisher like Thompson Reuters asked me to contribute to one of the few authoritative books addressing the evolving world of Fashion Law,” said Seyamack Kouretchian.  “I hope the insight I shared will help other attorneys better navigate the complex and myriad legal challenges faced by their apparel industry clients.”
