The attorneys in our Manufacturing Industry Group support privately-held, middle market light and medium manufacturers in the Carolinas.
We negotiate and prepare commercial and transactional agreements and advise on all aspects of relationships in the manufacturing space, including manufacture/supply agreements, distribution relationships, clickwrap terms, and financing and agreements.
We regularly assist manufacturing clients with environmental, employment, and other regulatory compliance. We give counsel in connection with customer, vendor, and employee disputes, including trade secret protection and warranty claims.
We assist with factory leasing, financing, upfit, and acquisition/sale.
Our affiliation with Meritas gives our firm a national and international reach, for example, enabling us to counsel clients on California’s Proposition 65 compliance and trade law compliance (including NAFTA and tariffs). Our attorneys have closed manufacturing deals in most of the fifty states, as well as Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, the U.K., China, Hong Kong, and Japan.
