BUSINESS OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED

together

As manufacturing lawyers in one of the country's most exciting manufacturing and engineering regions we understand the challenges that the industry is facing from matters such as 'Industry 4.0' and the uncertainty of Brexit. Whilst these can be seen as challenges, they also afford the industry and our clients a wealth of opportunities to develop and exploit new products, methods of production and explore new foreign markets.

Servicing those from the small, owner-managed businesses to some of the nation's biggest names in the manufacturing and engineering industry, we cater for our clients' full range of legal requirements. With specialist knowledge of this sector, our advice is tailored to the respective needs, priorities and size of our clients' businesses, whether trading on a national or international basis.

We act for commercial clients and take a commercial view, making honest recommendations to suit the business needs of clients in a legal context. We understand the tight margins that many in the sector are working to and offer customisable levels of support and an unparalleled range of competitively priced packages. We offer everything from fixed fee cover to a less hands-on more ad hoc business support.

Our service standards clearly differentiate us. Building relationships from the outset is important to the way we work, working with our clients rather than for them. We pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable style and strive to establish a good working rapport with each of our clients. We are described regularly as feeling like an extension of our clients' own teams. We consider this the ultimate testament to the delivery of a bespoke, hands-on service.
