WE UNDERSTAND MANUFACTURING
Our manufacturing lawyers represent manufacturers and distributors both nationally and internationally. Our clients range from Fortune 50 companies to privately held and/or family-owned companies that sell both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) products and services. We understand that many manufacturers operate within complex supply chains. For that reason, we have experience dealing with situations in which our clients have all, some, or no leverage in business dealings. We also have significant experience within subindustries of manufacturing, including aerospace, medical device, chemicals, building materials, industrial manufacturers, food and beverage (including nutritional supplements), and technology. Our goal is to provide our clients with new capabilities through experience and innovation.
In May 2019, Robinson+Cole was presented with the President’s “E” Award for Export Service by the United States Secretary of Commerce. The “E” Award for Export Service was established by President John F. Kennedy in 1961 and is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. Robinson+Cole was the only law firm in the country to receive the honor in 2019.

In 2016, Robinson+Cole created the Manufacturing Law Group (MLG), a forum for in-house lawyers at manufacturing companies that operate worldwide to network, hear and give presentations on substantive legal topics of interest, and share best practices. From its inception, the MLG has grown to nearly 40 companies and 85 in-house lawyers. For more information, please contact Jeff White.
Our manufacturing lawyers routinely host executive dinner roundtables for C-suite manufacturing executives of privately held manufacturers.
