Legal representation of the manufacturing industry requires innovation, agility, insight, and pervasiveness – all hinging on the thorough understanding of our clients’ business models and the industries within which they operate. Clients in the manufacturing industry grapple with a myriad of business and legal issues on a daily basis, including brand protection, technical, design and intellectual property rights, product life cycles, warranties, research and development and revenue streams from maintenance.
