Manufacturing and industrials

As advisors to many national and international manufacturing and industrial businesses, we understand the challenges that the sector faces, from supply chain disruption, to rising costs and issues concerning ESG more widely. We’re uniquely equipped to provide pragmatic and cost-effective legal advice on the whole range of legal issues you encounter in your business. We know that regulatory compliance and robust commercial arrangements in your sector are essential, and we have the knowledge and expertise to advise and support you, from product conception and beyond, so that your business and its reputation are protected. Our experienced team constantly reviews legal changes that may impact our manufacturing and industrials clients so that we can help you plan ahead and remain competitive.

The UK Manufacturing, Automotive and Food & Drinks Industries are vulnerable to changes in the rules and practices in the United Kingdom and so have to adjust their operations to stay compliant with their legal obligations, such as proposed new rules to do away with single-use plastic items and the push to end the sale of fossil fuel cars as part of the Government’s green recovery plan. We are well placed to support businesses in navigating their way through these changes, sharing our insights from working with clients in the Manufacturing & Industrials sector.
