Legal Concerns for Manufacturing Businesses
Manufacturers often need to deal with complex concerns, including working with domestic and international suppliers and distributors, protection of intellectual property, and staying on top of the latest technologies and regulations. We assist manufacturing businesses with legal matters such as:
- Business formation – When starting a manufacturing company, it is important to select the correct business entity and complete the requirements for establishing a structure for the company. This will ensure that you can benefit from the tax benefits of having a business and that owners or partners will not be personally liable for business debts or actions taken by other partners.
- Contract negotiation and review – Manufacturers will need to enter into a wide variety of domestic or international contractual agreements with other parties, including equipment suppliers, delivery companies, retailers, and consultants. We can help you draft and negotiate vendor contracts, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreements, and licensing agreements, and we can ensure that these contracts contain non-disclosure clauses and terms protecting your patents, trademarks, and copyrights.
- Mergers and acquisitions – We can ensure that you meet all requirements when acquiring, being acquired by, or merging with another company, including performing due diligence, updating contracts, and determining how the new business will be structured.
- Employment contracts – In addition to drafting contracts that define your company’s relationship with your employees and contain the necessary non-compete agreements, we can ensure that you follow the proper procedures when hiring independent contractors or consultants. We can also ensure that your company policies and employee handbooks will meet your ongoing needs.
- Dispute resolution – If you become involved in a business dispute, we can help you understand the best ways to resolve these matters while protecting your rights and your financial interests. In some cases, we may be able to help you resolve disputes through mediation or arbitration, and we can also provide representation during court litigation and help you obtain restraining orders or injunctions that protect your business from harm.
