Britain was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and manufacturing remains an extremely important part of the UK economy, particularly so in Coventry, Warwickshire and the West Midlands. In the UK as a whole, manufacturing makes up 11% of GVA, 44% of total exports, 70% of business research and development, and directly employs 2.6 million people. As a firm with its roots firmly established in this area, we are very proud of this manufacturing heritage, and have created a specialist sector within our firm to address the specific needs of manufacturing businesses.
As change continues to impact upon manufacturing from a number of directions, some driven by manufacturers themselves, others motivated by customers, and all of them offering new opportunities, the need for access to experienced but innovative, accurate but practical legal advice, often at short notice, has perhaps never been greater.
Manufacturing businesses come in all shapes and sizes and trading entities, ranging from small businesses employing a handful of staff, to larger operations including employing hundreds and occasionally thousands. They also encompass a vast range of product areas.
The legal needs of a manufacturing business can cover a number of specialist areas of law, as diverse as commercial and corporate law, commercial property, litigation and dispute resolution, employment, protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights, etc.
We can provide the expertise and specialist advice that your business needs. We genuinely care about our clients, we listen, are compassionate to clients’ needs and emotions and we always strive to go above and beyond, ensuring your business is completely satisfied with the service and advice which it receives from us. We always look to build strong and lasting relationships with all our clients, based upon trust and integrity.
