Manufacturing companies operate in highly competitive marketplaces and require constant innovation. Fish is at the top of the list of law firms representing the nation’s leading innovators and is in a position to leverage the educational and experiential expertise of the firm’s attorneys in all manufacturing industries.
Our breadth of knowledge allows us to act as key advisors and counselors to our clients, helping them to develop new products, enhance processing and supply chain systems, acquire new resources, and outsource strategically.
The list below includes some of the industries in which our clients produce either their own or other companies’ products:
Aerospace, automotive, and other transportation components
Computer and telecommunications hardware
Clients in these industries receive the full range of the firm’s services: regulatory, trademark, and patent prosecution, as well as litigation, corporate, and more. Our manufacturing clients are located in both the United States and a number of foreign countries and are served by the attorneys in all our domestic offices and our attorneys in Munich, Germany.
Particular challenges for companies with cross-border operations are the growing regulatory challenges related to homeland security measures and the increasing enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Clients leverage our expertise as they develop policies and procedures that will enable them to operate as efficiently as possible within these and other regulatory and legal constraints, as well as to defend themselves against claims of alleged violations by regulatory, judicial, and administrative agencies.
We are also one of the leading firms representing clients before the International Trade Commission, a critical venue for clients with cross-border operations.
