From SMEs to PLCs, at home or abroad. We understand the manufacturing sector, industry issues and how your business functions. The scope and scalability of our sector-focused advice is designed to give your manufacturing business a competitive edge, and help you open up new opportunities and markets in the most effective way.

Our multi-disciplinary team has been acting for manufacturers for many years, operating from offices strategically placed in the core industrial heartlands of the UK. We also have extensive experience of international markets, particularly China and Japan. Because we know how foreign manufacturing operations and markets work and the specific issues that dealing with them presents, we can offer expert contract drafting advice and insight into how best to mitigate risk to your business. If anything does go wrong, our commercial dispute resolution specialists are on hand to protect your interests.

We focus on five key sub-sectors – automotive, aerospace, healthcare equipment, food manufacturing and general industrials – and regularly work for the likes of Volvo, Müller Dairies, Brintons Carpets, Denby Pottery and Dunlop Aircraft Tyres.

We’ve developed specialist expertise in supply chain management and have recently created an e-book on the subject. This guides you through everything from drafting and negotiating contracts to dealing with your supplier or your customer on a day-to-day basis.
