Industrial, Manufacturing, and Distribution
OVERVIEW
CLIENTS

Like the manufacturing and distribution clients we represent, Maynard continually works to improve our products, services, and processes to deliver the highest quality counsel in the most cost-effective manner.  Since Maynard’s founding, we have proudly served the legal needs of manufacturers and distributors of all sizes.  Based on this extensive experience, Maynard offers a full line of legal tools, products and services specifically designed to help manufacturers and distributors effectively navigate the wide variety of legal challenges they face on a daily basis.

In order to more effectively serve Maynard’s clients in this industry, we brought together attorneys from different areas of the firm into a Manufacturing Focus Group.  This team has extensive experience serving manufacturing and distribution clients across a wide spectrum of industries, and includes lawyers representing multiple practice groups:

  • economic development and incentives
  • general corporate
  • governmental and regulatory affairs
  • labor and employment
  • environmental
  • immigration
  • intellectual property
  • retail and consumer products
  • litigation
  • real estate

This team approach allows our firm to increase the value provided to manufacturing and distribution clients, in part, through attorney collaboration across many legal disciplines focused on strategic solutions for those clients.

Maynard’s manufacturing and distribution clients range from publicly-traded companies to small privately-held businesses founded by family members. They include manufacturers and distributors of a variety of commercial and consumer products, sub-components, distributors, and others in the supply chain.  Along this spectrum, members of our team serve as legal counsel and advisors to boards of directors, executives, committees, and in-house legal departments, as well as “outside general counsel” for small market and mid-market companies that do not have in-house legal departments.

Our manufacturing and distribution clients include:

  • An international ductile iron pipe, valve and fitting manufacturer with a presence in eight countries and operating 13 iron foundries
  • A fully integrated steel mill and pipe manufacturing facility with over 1,800 employees
  • A coke manufacturing facility with annual capacity of approximately 730,000 tons of saleable coke
  • A steel merchant bar and structural products manufacturing facility with multi-national product distribution
  • Interstate pipeline companies with delivery systems located throughout the Southern and Eastern United States
  • An industry leader in military aircraft maintenance and modifications support
  • An international buildings material supplier and cement producer

Maynard Cooper provides business leaders and decision makers with strategic guidance in a practical and cost-effective manner.  We understand the importance of being proactive and identifying and addressing issues before they become full-fledged problems.
