Schiff Hardin has been representing Chicago manufacturers since the 1870s. Today, we represent modern manufacturers across the United States, from makers of high tech products like computers and mobile phones to food ingredients, consumer goods, and industrial and construction equipment.
Tapping lawyers from virtually every practice area within our firm, we counsel public and private companies on a full range of issues, including:
- public and private financing
- mergers and acquisitions
- supply, distribution and customer contracts
- buying and leasing of real estate
- equipment purchases and leases
- labor and employment
- intellectual property
- product liability
- regulatory issues
Schiff Hardin’s success in representing manufacturers is based on the strong relationships we develop. Our lawyers work to fully understand your business and to recognize the needs, opportunities and challenges you face on a daily basis. We offer not only strategic counsel on major decisions, but general corporate advice and input on day-to-day business matters, especially for private companies without in-house counsel. We pride ourselves on our responsiveness and accountability, and take a practical approach that delivers successful results.
