Hedi Slimane has been handed in victory in the latest round of his ongoing legal battle against previous employer Kering. A Paris commercial court said this week that Slimane should have access to financial information regarding GG France Holding, one of Kering's holding companies - something which GG France Holding had challenged.
Leon del Forno, speaking on behalf of the Temime law firm acting for Slimane, said Slimane was "extremely satisfied" by the ruling, while a Kering spokeswoman had no immediate comment to make on the court decision. In June, Kering was ordered in a separate, interim court ruling to pay Slimane $13 million regarding the way his departure from the company this year was handled. Kering said at the time it would appeal against that verdict.
