Lawyers from virtually all our major practice areas contribute their efforts to help make advanced manufacturing clients more effective and competitive. Those clients range from major manufacturers of aerospace products and medical devices to growing small and mid-sized producers of life sciences products, software, computer-related process and devices, polymers, optical systems, and many other sophisticated technologies. We help manufacturing clients of every size and at every level of advanced technology deal with the financial, operational, intellectual property, and regulatory issues that directly effect their business success. That includes guidance on corporate matters (finance, joint ventures and business combinations) employment law (including confidentiality and non-compete agreements), intellectual property protection, purchases of facilities and real estate, and tax planning. Our broad capabilities help technology manufacturers deal with the challenges and opportunities of their industry’s rapidly changing competitive conditions.
