Manufacturing/Distribution Industry Focus

One of the most frustrating things for a client is to have to work with a lawyer who does not understand the client’s business.  In addition, the types of transactions most commonly encountered, and the relative importance of different issues, will vary from industry to industry.  An industry focus is like other types of focus - a more concentrated experience will lead to better and faster understanding, judgment and efficiency within that area of focus. 

I have had lifelong exposure to manufacturing beginning with my father’s work as an engineer in manufacturing plants, my experience as a co-op electrical engineering student in manufacturing environments, and my work as the in-house general counsel of manufacturing companies both large and small.  I understand the issues of manufacturing companies, which can include:

  • A variety of specific concerns are presented by the purchases of equipment, raw materials and services and the sale and delivery of manufactured goods
  • Low profit margins can make it important to protect against large unexpected costs and liabilities that can arise from manufacturing problems
  • Protection of patent and other intellectual property rights can be critical in maintaining a competitive advantage or in defending against claims by others
