Manufacturing & Food Processing

Print PDF


In manufacturing and food processing, legal issues arise during each phase of the process, from design, process and production to distribution, integration and collection.  We serve clients in transactional matters like mergers and acquisitions, handle day-to-day employment and labor needs, provide counsel to prevent unwanted litigation and defend clients when problems inevitably arise. These problems vary in size, scope and subject matter. 

Our clients manufacture everything from printing paper, to snacks, to industrial machinery. Our knowledge and experience in multiple practice areas enable us to handle the various issues that arise in each industry. We serve both large multinational companies and local enterprises with the goal of contributing to the long-term value and strategic growth of each business.

Our legal knowledge is underscored with our understanding of the manufacturing industry. We are involved with various trade associations that include members from all types of manufacturing services. In addition to counseling manufacturers, our attorneys frequently provide educational opportunities and presentations to manufacturing groups to help them stay on top of all legal updates and compliance issues.
