Our Commitment to Diversity

General Manufacturing

Service to manufacturing companies has long been one of the bedrock foundations of our law firm. Today, with decades of experience under our belt, we understand the numerous legal, regulatory, operational, and financial issues that manufacturing companies face. As the industry undergoes a monumental transformation, we are uniquely positioned to assist clients in addressing significant shifts in their operations and serve as their “industry” law firm.

We are well-versed in key trends confronting our clients in the industry. There are the advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and blockchain having a dramatic effect on manufacturers’ R&D, supply chain management, production, and sales. One overarching trend, the Internet of Things, allows manufacturers to manage the maintenance of machines in a predictive and prescriptive way. Integrated and networked sensors and intelligent devices can predict and detect issues and prescribe improvements in one device or an entire plant.

Manufacturer and supplier integration is another evolving issue we help manufacturers address. We work with them to think through the desired objectives, long-term effect, and inherent risks of integration. We also navigate them through the complex web of global supply chain risks to realize the rewards of proactive engagement in modern ethical supply chain practice.

Yet another movement in the industry is renewable energy. Manufacturers are pivoting away from fossil fuels, and versatility of methods like biomass, solar thermal systems, and electrification make them top replacement options.

From day-to-day business issues to innovative advances in your operations, our lawyers can provide a wide range of services to meet your needs.
