Deborah Greaves Appears in Women’s Wear Daily – Premium Brands Staying Close to Home in L.A.

Brutzkus Gubner attorney Deborah Greaves appeared in Khanh T.L. Tran’s¬†Women’s Wear Daily article “Premium Brands Staying Close to Home in L.A.” ¬†Here is an excerpt from the article:

“This Made in USA standard that California law has adopted is just inconsistent with a lot of other bodies of law,” said Deborah Greaves, founder of a law firm called Label Law, who previously served as the general counsel for True Religion. “So much of the [apparel] industry has been decimated [in the U.S.] and trade is global. What does it really accomplish if you have a zipper that is, say, from Japan, but 99.9 percent of the garment is U.S.-originating? Under the California law, they wouldn’t want you to say it’s made in the U.S.”
