Working just in time and to formidably tight margins, we know just how much pressure that businesses within the automotive sector are under and with most looking to limit their exposure to risk and liability, they need a legal team that understands their sector and its pressures.
Our automotive clients fall into two camps:
– component and vehicle manufacture; and
– retail, distribution and after-market services.
Every automotive client needs help from time to time on contractual matters, property issues and in relation to employees.
Supply arrangements are key in this sector as stopping a production line can be hugely costly as can being held to ransom by a supplier.
We have specialist lawyers with many years experience in the automotive sector, working with component manufacturers, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, OEMs (original equipment manufacturer) and dealerships and garages.
We are often asked to advise and draft and negotiate where applicable:
Members of our team have acted for the likes of Ford and Mazda, OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers such as Magna Exteriors and Interiors through to medium and smaller manufacturers of component parts. We have lawyers with experience of working with automotive clients at all levels of the supply chain. We have the legal expertise you need, an understanding of your market and act swiftly and effectively when you need support.
