Manufacturing Lawyers

Manufacturing Solicitors

Manufacturing businesses are renowned for their resilience and innovation, forming the powerhouse behind the UK’s economy.

With the sector responsible for about eight per cent of the UK’s GDP, continuing to support the contributions that manufacturers make will remain a priority for the business community and a focus for Government.

That being said, there is no doubt that economic volatility will be weighing heavy on the industry.

Our mission is to make you robust to shocks, agile to opportunity and focused on profit.

We understand the manufacturing space in its entirety. Our team of commercially-minded lawyers are backed by a far-reaching industry network and years of relevant experience. We build a team around your needs to ensure that all your business interests are supported by specialists, regardless of scope or scale.

Manufacturing businesses are unique in many ways – often with significant amounts of physical assets such as plant and machinery, and sizeable, complex workforces. This makes it fundamental that you have access to advisers that help you respond to the dramatically changing world that you now face. From corporate transactions, securing finance and health and safety, to procurement, competition and employment challenges, we’ll provide corporate counsel at every turn.

Our services
We typically support manufacturing businesses ranging from £30m to £300m turnover on the full spectrum of corporate and commercial challenges. We combine meticulous legal knowledge, with a rigorous commercial understanding of your sector.

We understand the constraints, foibles and hardened determination that many of you operating in the sector know all too well and we work with you to create positive outcomes and drive your business forward.

Working with you
We believe that the best working relationships are those that are based on trust, honesty and outstanding results. We invest time and resource in truly getting to know you and your business to ensure that we can continually add value, advice and understanding.

Earlier this year we published our report exploring the sentiment around Brexit of over 500 business leaders across the UK. With just months to go before the UK will leave the EU, our final survey is due to commence.

Challenges facing the market

Brexit

As a business owner, you will always have one eye firmly on the future.

With the information vacuum regarding the UK’s post-Brexit trading arrangements leading to uncertainty around your direct and indirect supply chains, financial security, workforce gaps and profit margin impacts, there is no wonder that decision making is stalling. We help you to analyse what’s possible, what’s prudent and what’s practical while the Brexit tale continues to unfold. Reviewing your employment profile, supply chain agility and responsiveness to regulatory change can help you become better equipped to limit damage or to seize opportunities presented by leaving the EU.

Skills Gap

Your access to a talent pool of highly-skilled workers has reduced over the past 30 years.

Yes, this is now exacerbated by Brexit, but the problem has been around for decades. In recent years, there has been a deliberate – albeit tardy – push from Government to re-incentivise businesses and learners to pursue careers in STEM. We support you by helping to make the most of the Apprenticeship Levy, identifying global talent pools and advising on how to overcome the impacts of the skills gap with greater clarity and confidence.
