Full Bio

Jeremy Richardson is a partner in M&R’s New York office. A preeminent lawyer serving the juvenile products industry, his practice is particularly concentrated on matters concerning children’s apparel, accessories, and furniture.

Given his vast expertise and background in fashion law, Jeremy’s clients rely on him to advise on and litigate copyright and trademark claims and an array of contract disputes, including those related to purchase and sale, license, and sales representative agreements, terms and conditions of sale, and minimum advertised price policies. He is also sought after by manufacturers of children’s goods to provide counsel on compliance matters. Entrepreneurs routinely retain Jeremy to protect their intellectual property, negotiate partnerships and other business structures, and, when necessary, handle litigation. As to the latter, Jeremy regularly practices in New York State courts, in arbitration, has argued before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and has been admitted pro hac vice to practice in the California Superior Court.

Jeremy’s impact on the juvenile products industry has been felt beyond the boardroom and courthouse. Since 2005, he has worked closely with the American Apparel & Footwear Association’s (AAFA) Product Safety Council, urging Congress to improve implementation of the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). His professional affiliations also extend to the Juvenile Products Manufacturers’ Association (JPMA) – he is an associate member – and the International Consumer Products Health and Safety Organization.

A frequent guest lecturer at Parsons School of Design and Fordham Law School – where he speaks on legal and regulatory issues in the fashion industry – Jeremy began his career as an entertainment lawyer counseling recording artists.

Education

Jeremy earned a J.D. from Rutgers University School of Law in Newark. He was an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis, where was conferred a B.A.
