How can we help?
We have many years of experience in advising industrial and manufacturing enterprises representing a wide range of industries, including paper and packaging, paint and coatings, metal working, plastic processing, electronics, chemicals, building materials, furniture, energy, hearing aids, jewellery and clothing.
We render advice that facilitates the fulfilment of our clients’ strategic objectives and operational targets. Our advice includes general commercial law, employment and labour law, tax law, intellectual property law, business transfers, mergers, demergers and other forms of reorganisation.
Many of our clients are international businesses requiring local legal advice in many different countries. Our extensive international network of highly qualified specialists ensures that our clients receive high calibre legal advice abroad.
The manufacturing industry faces a number of challenges, including globalisation, instability in energy supply and the need to introduce new design and manufacturing technologies in order to stay competitive.
Moreover, the sector is catering to a customer segment undergoing radical changes. Customers focus increasingly on sustainability, and they demand that their suppliers assume social responsibility and pay attention to environmental issues in the production processes. As a result, businesses require specialist advice covering all aspects of the new landscape in which manufacturing and production enterprises operate.
