Manufacturers today face myriad pressures and demands – from supply chain and distribution concerns to increasingly complex regulatory environments. Bell Nunnally’s experienced attorneys bring a multidisciplinary approach to building legal solutions that support our manufacturing clients’ ability to agilely bring their products to market.
Our team works closely with domestic and international manufacturing companies across a variety of industry sectors, helping them navigate the challenges that arise from completing mergers and investment deals, complying with regulatory requirements and agencies, developing efficient business operations, engaging a well-managed workforce, negotiating with essential suppliers and distributors, and protecting against competitors. We deliver favorable outcomes for our clients across a broad spectrum of transactional matters including entity formation and corporate governance, investments, asset sales and acquisitions, financing arrangements and stock sales.
Regulatory and Compliance
Assisting clients with regulatory matters from labeling and production to SEC and antitrust, we have represented clients before a wide range of state and federal agencies, including the FDA, FTC, TABC, EEOC, DOL, OSHA, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and others. Our employment and immigration attorneys assist manufacturers with numerous issues impacting workers, including OSHA compliance and workplace safety, visas, reductions in force and plant closings, workplace discrimination and harassment claims, wage and hour compliance, employee benefits, and negotiations in labor disputes with unionized employees.
From employment class actions to products liability lawsuits, the firm’s litigation and appeals attorneys bring deep experience representing manufacturers in the disputes that distract from their successful production. Our litigators have experience defending clients in multi-district litigation associated with recalls, representing companies in adversary proceedings in the United States Bankruptcy Court, and handling a variety of intellectual property disputes regarding patents, trade secrets and noncompete agreements.
