Footwear Businesses & the Law: Common Pitfalls and Pragmatic Solutions

We are excited to invite all our valued members to an exclusive webinar with Philip Deja, Managing Partner at Streathers Solicitors, who will take business owners and leaders in the footwear industry through the typical stages in the life cycle of a footwear business, with a focus on the key legal issues and potential triggers you may experience along the way. Philip will highlight pitfalls to avoid and offer pragmatic, cost-effective solutions, often without needing to pay a lawyer in the first place.

Using real-life examples from Philip’s own experience, he will offer insight into key issues for footwear businesses, such as supply chain relationships, fundraising, research collaborations and M&A or succession planning.

You will also have the opportunity to drill down into concrete issues facing your own business in a Q&A with Philip at the end of the session.
