Sindhu Sundar

Sindhu Sundar is a financial reporter writing about litigation, enforcement actions and regulations affecting fashion and apparel companies. She covers all the milestones in the business life cycle — trademark disputes, wage & hour and workplace discrimination class actions, agency oversight, Supreme Court decisions and bankruptcies. PACER, public filings and business search directories are her trusty sidekicks. Attorneys she interviews wonder why she didn’t just go to law school.
