Arent Fox LLP partner Anthony V.

Law360 reported that Mr. Lupo was honored as one of the top three retail and e-commerce attorneys in the United States “because of his comprehensive knowledge of the global legal issues facing fashion clients. A Swiss Army knife with a law degree, he handles intellectual property, labor and employment, class actions, signage rights and many other legal issues, backed by Arent Fox’s formidable attorney bench.”
Mr. Lupo’s diverse practice operates at the intersection of e-commerce, fashion, and media and entertainment. He serves as strategic counselor to leading companies that include Diane Von Furstenberg, Maison Martin Margiela, Lacoste, Diesel, and Hugo Boss in the fashion industry; Google, PlayStation, and LG in the technology space; and Discovery Channel, Pixar, and The Oprah Winfrey Network in the area of entertainment. Last year, Mr. Lupo and his team launched Fashion Counsel, a legal blog that highlights critical issues for designers, retailers, and manufacturers. A link to the blog is here.
“On the business side, I’m a consigliere,” Mr. Lupo told Law360. “I can talk about what other companies are doing, or what the risk level of a business decision is. To know what others in the industry are doing is very helpful to these retail companies.”
“I don’t think there are many other practices that have seen the breadth of issues that we have,” said Mr. Lupo about Arent Fox. “We’re the only firm I’m aware of that does a total soup to nuts fashion practice. We know the issues you’re raising with us, we’ve seen it before and we’ve most likely worked on it for someone else.”
