Manufacturers and their operations require a wide range of legal services. Robinson+Cole employs a cross-disciplinary team approach when providing legal counsel to our manufacturing clients. We view ourselves as partners with our manufacturing clients, working together to plan ahead to avoid legal pitfalls and solve problems innovatively and cost-effectively. By identifying and evaluating risks early, our goal is to avoid lasting consequences. If litigation proves necessary, we bring this same cross-disciplinary approach to litigation services, ensuring that the appropriate expertise is available to efficiently prosecute or defend a lawsuit.
Robinson+Cole's manufacturing clientele include manufacturers of a variety of commercial and consumer products, subcomponents, distributors, and others in the supply chain. Our firm has experience in a wide spectrum of industries, including aerospace, building materials, chemicals, electrical, food and beverage (including nutritional products), industrial machinery, pharmaceuticals, and technology. To meet the needs of our firm's manufacturing clients, our lawyers are active in several industry groups, including the Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA), the Manufacturing Alliance of Connecticut (MAC), and the New Haven Manufacturer's Association. A tangible example of our cross-disciplinary service for manufacturers can be found at our Manufacturing Law Blog, written by a labor and employment lawyer, a products liability lawyer and litigator, and an environmental health and safety lawyer.
