Manufacturers play a key role in the global and national economies. At Michael Best, we’re proud to support more than 400 manufacturing clients who help keep those economies going.
Manufacturers today operate in an increasingly complex regulatory, legal, and technological environment. There’s also a vast, rapidly changing array of tools for manufacturers to improve efficiency and productivity; develop innovative materials, designs, and techniques; manage their workforces; and interact with end users.
Michael Best helps clients make strategic choices and set a course for the future. Our deep understanding of the manufacturing industry is built on a history dating back to our firm’s founding in 1848. As industry evolves, we evolve alongside it.
To serve the diverse needs of manufacturers, our attorneys collaborate across many legal disciplines, including:
- Intellectual property
- Real estate
- Labor and employment
- Government relations
- Privacy and cybersecurity
We provide proactive, strategic legal counsel to facilitate the seamless development, production, distribution, and protection of our clients’ products. Whether you’re negotiating a contract, moving an idea through the patent process, seeking financing, training employees, updating your information security program, or defending litigation, Michael Best can apply the well-coordinated effort you need.
In addition to our attorneys’ decades of experience advising manufacturers from virtually every sector, some have worked in-house at major manufacturers, giving us a comprehensive perspective. We understand the new opportunities and challenges facing manufacturers, as well as the risks. Michael Best is here to help you keep up, look ahead, and stay competitive.
Michael Best is an active member of manufacturing organizations and trade associations, including Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, the Utah Manufacturing Alliance, and the New North. We routinely participate in and sponsor industry events. Our attorneys frequently speak on industry-specific topics at seminars, conferences, and other events hosted by organizations such as the Wisconsin Safety Council and Grocery Manufacturers Association.
