Our lawyers partner with your team to accomplish your objectives—whether that means developing long-term growth strategies, reducing risk, or just resolving day-to-day issues. We advise companies in a wide array of industrial sectors: refining, oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, polyolefin, automotive manufacturing, tire and rubber, consumer goods, food, industrial goods, bulk handling, pneumatic conveying, and raw materials. And we help these clients in a spectrum of matters ranging from litigation and dispute management (including products-liability issues) to transactional matters touching on contracting, product safety, trademarks, labor and employment, mergers and acquisitions, and project management.
In many cases, our work begins at the bid-process or purchase-order stage, where we help fashion the client’s best approach to landing the job. Our work then moves to drafting or negotiating the contract and terms and conditions that accurately reflect the scope of work and fairly protects all parties. Our team has handled the contracting paper-work for more than 1,500 projects to date.
We understand that for you, thorough planning is a key component of success, but we also recognize that unforeseen obstacles and disagreements can delay even the best-laid plans, frustrating the parties’ financial and scheduling expectations. When this happens, we assist our clients in resolving disputes, getting paid, and handling claims whether for defects, liquidated damages, or back-charges. When needed, we also help clients assert and prosecute liens.
Our engineering, manufacturing, and construction litigation experience brings a unique advantage to high-stakes construction and engineering disputes. Our attorneys are trained extensively to try high-value, complex cases in any forum. We bring our trial and advocacy prowess to bear on every dispute we handle. And we understand your business.
Your success depends on your reputation for developing safe, high-quality products. We understand what is at stake when your reputation is challenged. We are trusted by some of the world’s largest manufacturers and engineering firms producing construction products, medical devices, industrial products and machinery, processing equipment, and other complex machinery. Whether the claim alleges business interruption, production delays, lost product, breach of contract and/or warranty, strict liability, or personal injuries or death, we are well suited to defend you, your product, and your reputation.
