Seeing (RED) - Freshfields on working with the groundbreaking charity
As intellectual property lawyers, the concept behind (RED) is immediately fascinating - a brand that saves lives. It's a bold claim, but then again this is no ordinary brand. In just four years, (RED) product sales have generated over $150m (£96m) to help improve the lives of more than five million people affected by HIV in Africa.
