We value the clear and concise advice we received as well as the prompt and helpful service.
Our manufacturing and engineering clients operate at the forefront of innovation across a broad range of industries, including the chemical, automotive and aerospace sectors. We have a wealth of experience in advising them at all levels and at all stages in the life cycle of their organisations through our highly-regarded group of specialists.
Manufacturing and engineering businesses are often characterised by a strong commitment to research and development and protection of key IP within an increasingly competitive market. Our team of ‘band 1’ ranked lawyers provides expert guidance on all aspects of intellectual property and commercial law, including complex licensing arrangements, university collaborations, cross-border joint ventures and IP infringement litigation.
We take every opportunity to understand our clients’ businesses, and many members of our team have spent time working in industry, both as in-house counsel and on long-term secondments. We believe that an understanding of the wider business environment is crucial to enable us to provide commercially focused, up-to-the-minute advice.
Clients also benefit from our international reach. We use our strong global connections to support them as they expand and operate on a multinational level, whether organically or by acquisition.
