Manufacturing

Dilworth Paxson’s lawyers represent clients in the manufacturing sector across a wide variety of practice areas. Our lawyers are therefore extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the challenges that manufacturers face, such as global competition, government regulation, cost containment, labor, employment, pension, and ERISA matters, contract negotiations, contraction of supplier and customer bases, intellectual property rights, and the exercise of trade-creditor rights, among others.

Dilworth’s lawyers have represented manufacturing-sector clients in litigation relating to supplier contracts, customer contracts, disputes with competitors, collections actions, labor, employment, and pension litigation, disputes relating to patents, trademarks, and copyrights, personal injury defense, and other areas. Those same lawyers also devote significant time to counseling clients how to avoid litigation risk or working with clients on early-intervention programs to prevent ordinary business disputes from festering into litigation. Our lawyers have handled trade creditor issues, bankruptcy filings, and preference actions on a national basis for several large manufacturing companies, and they have experience handling corporate transactions of all sizes and scopes for manufacturing companies, including securing project financing, mergers and acquisitions, and Hart-Scott-Rodino or other antitrust-related filings, as well as patent prosecution and licensing transactions. In addition, our lawyers routinely handle issues relating to environmental regulations, insurance coverage, workplace regulation, union negotiations, and immigration questions for manufacturing-sector clients. Finally, our lawyers are well-versed in the sometimes-unique issues that arise when manufacturing-sector clients buy, sell, or lease real estate.

Search Tips

Our Web site's search function employs a variety of techniques to help you make the most of your queries. In this tips section we use square brackets [ ] to signal queries, so [antitrust and litigation] is one query, while [antitrust] and [litigation] are two.

  • Exact phrases: Eliminate unnecessary search results by surrounding your search phrase with quotation marks. Placing ["project finance"] in quotes will return specific results and discard additional results that simply have the words "project" and "finance" peppered on a page.
  • Wildcard symbol: If you're not exactly sure how a piece of information you want is phrased, use the following symbol (*) as a word root expander. A search for [child*] will find not only "child," but also results with words like "children" and "childhood."
