Tory Burch and Chris Burch Reach Settlement Agreement

A Guide to Every Dramatic Moment in the "Battle of the Burches"

Tory Burch and Chris Burch Reach Settlement Agreement

After four months of legal volleys — including a countersuit, subpoenas on Christmas Eve, and allegations of corporate misconduct — Tory Burch and her ex-husband and business partner Chris Burch have finally settled their lawsuits against each other.

The drama around this case started over a year ago when Chris opened C. Wonder, which many saw as a threat to Tory's brand. From its outset, the lower-priced line of clothing and accessories was accused of looking too similar to Tory's aesthetic. The resolution to this case doesn't address those similarities and instead focuses on the sale of Chris's stake in the company, much of which went to two new investors. This lessens his power and involvement at the brand, which will hopefully give both Burches some peace.

So how did they get to this point? A look back at every step of the aptly named Battle of the Burches, here in the gallery.
