The Industry's First Master Class

The Industry London
29 November 2011

The Industry has added master classes to its annual schedule of fashion business-focused networking events and the first one sees a collaboration with the V&A Reading Rooms and law firm, Sheridans.

Taking place on the 30th of November at 5:00pm, Sheridans will be advising fashion professionals on issues such as copyrights, branding, media and entertainment legislature, and employment law. The event is geared both to start-ups, emerging enterprises and established businesses that need a review.

Sheridans started over 50 years ago and has since been at the forefront of the fashion and media industries and their constant evolution. Sheridans’ lawyers Tahir Basheer and Daniela Cohen will be leading The Industry’s first Master Class.

Tahir’s expertise lies in management, exploitation and protection of intellectual property rights across all areas of media and entertainment including music, computer games, e-commerce, sport, fashion and merchandising. He advises corporate entities, entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals, up-and-coming artists, musicians, designers and creative industry management teams, both within the UK and abroad on everything from trademarks to the development of new business models and distribution channels. Tahir founded Sheridan’s Technology practice and has built a reputation for highly commercial advice in digital media. He is a member of the International Association of Entertainment Lawyers, a guest lecturer at Kings College London University for Creative Business Entrepreneur students and a longstanding member of The Industry.

At the same time Daniella Cohen will be advising the audience on employment law. Her experience includes advising on staff handbooks, manuals and employment contracts for multinational companies, as well as advising on global re-structuring and integration projects. She also devises sophisticated in-house training programs, co-ordinates multi-jurisdictional advice for European and US clients and prepares guidance on various employment issues, including flexible working arrangements, disciplinary and grievance procedures and changes to terms and conditions.

The Industry’s master class with Tahir Basheer and Daniella Cohen is a developmental event that will equip members with the knowledge and understanding to grow their businesses at a strong and sustainable pace.

I’m delighted that we’ve added master classes to our annual programme. As a professional and small business owner in the fashion industry, I know how important it is to get the legal and business fundamentals right. I hope our members are able to take away practical information to help their businesses grow.” Courtney Blackman, Managing Director, The Industry
