Manufacturing & Distribution

We understand that successful manufacturing and distribution is essential for a working national economy. Our lawyers help companies of all sizes deal with the financial, operational and regulatory issues that impact their business success and proactively identify issues and address them before they mature and become serious problems.

We handle all aspects of the business relationships between manufacturers and the distributors of their products. We strive to protect the interests of our clients when drafting distribution agreements and advise on issues involving warranties, sales contracts, pricing and antitrust compliance. We also assist with entity formation, contract review and negotiation, copyright and trademark, regulatory matters, OSHA, warehouse expansion, construction and environmental issues. We are well equipped to handle leasing and financing transactions including sale/leasebacks, leveraged lease financing and tax-exempt leasing.

Our business lawyers are able to step in when a manufacturer is facing litigation. We handle franchise disputes, unfair and deceptive trade practices claims, contract disputes, products liability and bad faith claims. Our lawyers have extensive experience practicing before the North Carolina Business Court and bring exceptional skill to bear to resolve litigation in the most efficient, cost-effective manner possible.
