As part of an agreement signed between the two companies, Jo Charnuis and its principal Cho Cheng retained HL LA to advise on its work with the fashion community and assist in the launch of Cheng’s designs and fashion collection in the American market. HL LA alleges that Jo Charnuis failed to pay its monthly retainer fees of $26,750 from April through July. A call to the attorney representing Jo Charnuis was not returned by press time.
