Danielle Garno (JD '00) Publishes Law360 Article on Fashion Industry Adapting to Pandemic and Trade War
Pepperdine Caruso Law alumna and Cozen O'Connor attorney Danielle Garno (JD '00) recently co-authored an article in Law360 on how the fashion industry is adapting amid a pandemic and a trade war. The article discusses the different effects that trade policies and the COVID-19 pandemic have had on the fashion industry. Once a global pandemic was added to the mix, the resulting landscape forced the fashion industry not only to examine its manufacturing and supply chain but also to adapt quickly or face devastating impact to their continued ability to survive. Danielle explains how successful business measures taken by this industry can provide inspiration for other segments of the economy.

Danielle's practice centers on fashion law, where she represents clients of all sizes, from startups to multinational, global brands, helping them navigate through legal issues as well as growing and sustaining a successful brand. She also serves as co-chair of Cozen O'Connor's Retail Industry Group.
Danielle's advice for Pepperdine students hoping to follow a similar path in practicing fashion law: "It is essential to first become a really good technical lawyer - whether it's in corporate law, litigation or IP or another practice - and then immerse in the world of fashion law." She enjoys the international travel and solving the unique business and legal challenges faced by the fashion industry. For Danielle, fashion law has proven to be a perfect fit.
