We can help you make it, literally and figuratively. McCarter & English provides an array of legal counsel to large, medium and small manufacturing companies ranging from intellectual property matters, corporate/commercial transactions, taxation, product liability counseling and litigation, to environmental, health and safety regulation, compliance and civil litigation and tackling tough labor and employment problems, to name just a few areas where the firm has historically helped its clients in various manufacturing enterprises. Manufacturing (still) drives the American economy and manufacturers of all stripes take advantage of McCarter & English’s experience in the industry.

As a manufacturer, your company faces risks that other businesses may not have to deal with.

You have intellectual property to protect and employees to manage. You have a plant to run and need capital to run it. You have suppliers, transporters and distributors to contract with. You have regulations to comply with. You may face product liability claims.
