José de Block, legal counsel at Halsten:
“We support Munro on the production side in the contract negotiations with manufacturers. On the sales side, we provide legal advice in terms of putting the brand Atelier Munro on the market, by means of shop-in-shop concepts and through online sales. We also draw up retail contracts with large chain stores that sell men’s fashion made by Munro under their brands. Munro does not have its legal department: along with these major processes, we are consulted on a variety of smaller subjects, such as leases and employment law.
I am their standing point of contact. Depending on the question, I consult with Halsten colleagues. In the area of privacy and data processing, for example.
Growing in tandem with the client is interesting and challenging; you contribute from your area of expertise to the company’s journey. To a growing degree, we are a sparring partner when strategic growth aspects are involved. This enables us to create a win-win situation that is rooted in a long-standing relationship built on mutual trust.”
