Manufacturing and Distribution

When you produce goods, you face a myriad of issues from funding new development and manufacture, protecting your brand and any intellectual property rights, working with suppliers to source raw materials or make components for your goods (potentially using tooling belonging to you or your customer), ensuring the goods are made to meet specification and quality and are packaged properly.

All this happens before you get the goods to the market. You may sell directly or through distributors or agents or both and have to deal with the logistics behind the supply.

It is easy to inadvertently damage your revenue stream and increase your risk and liability if you don’t get proper legal advice.
