Providing Critical Legal Services to Manufacturing Companies in the Carolinas
Our legal team services manufacturing companies in both North and South Carolina. Our services are designed to provide you with legal protection, mitigate legal infringements, ensure compliance with all laws and regulations, settle disputes efficiently, and more. Our legal services for manufacturing companies include, but are not limited to:
- Licensing agreements. A licensing agreement is an agreement between two parties whereby the licensor grants the licensee the right to use a product in some way, to use a trademark or brand name in some way, to use a patented technology owned by the licensor, or to buy or sell goods that are owned by the licensor. Whether you are seeking a licensing agreement as a licensor or a potential licensee, we provide high-quality representation that is detailed and thorough.
- Contract formation issues. Regardless of the type of company that you operate, having a skilled contracts lawyer available to draft, review, negotiate, and review any contracts that your business is considering is of critical importance. Once a contract is signed by all involved parties, it is legally enforceable, which means that there can be serious consequences for failing to adhere to its provisions. We’ll make sure that you understand all elements of any contract you are a part of, and that a contract is negotiated to best reflect your companies interests. We can also help you with contract enforcement and represent you in a breach of contract case.
- Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agreements. An enormous number of products that are on the market today are comprised of components and products from one or more distinct companies in order to make the final product. In order for a company to do so legally (i.e. take one part from company A and another from company C in order to make a single, final product sold by company C), they must have an Original Equipment Manufacturer, or OEM, agreement in place. Our law firm can help you to understand this agreement type, and represent you in forming one.
- Nondisclosure agreements. A non-disclosure agreement (NDA), or confidentiality agreement, is an agreement between a company and another party, such as an employee. Typically, the purpose of an NDA is to protect a business’s confidential and proprietary information, including any trade secrets. Your manufacturing company may require NDAs of its employees or other parties – our law firm can help you to understand when an NDA is appropriate and how to form an NDA that is legally sound and binding.
- Regulatory compliance. Manufacturing companies will face numerous regulations and rules, including those established by the federal Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Department of Labor (DOL) regulations, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, and more. Our law firm is well-versed in the variety of regulations that your manufacturing company is subject to, and can help you to meet and maintain compliance.
- Non-compete agreements. A non-compete clause may be part of an employee’s contract, and stipulates that the employee agrees to not enter into or start another professional that has similar aims and goals as the one for which they are currently employed. It is important that, if your manufacturing business is using non-compete agreements, these agreements are not unreasonably restrictive; otherwise, they may not be enforceable.
