ST&R acquires textile consulting firm

The Miami law firm of Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg has acquired the assets of International Business & Economic Research Center (IBERC), a Washington-based provider of consulting and analysis for the textile and apparel industry.

ST&R and IBERC both provide interactive reporting and analysis of textile quotas and related issues. Thomas Travis, managing director for ST&R, said that for the next 18 months, the two firms' trade-management services will be marketed under their current names.

Afterward, he said, ST&R "will launch an entirely new line of database reporting and information management products that incorporate IBERC technology and expertise with ST&R expertise and experience in international trade. These products will be marketed under the ST&R brand."
