Retail & Manufacturing

With extensive industry experience, our attorneys help manufacturers and retailers navigate the complexities of a technology-driven global marketplace.

Successful retail and manufacturing enterprises must navigate a more complex marketplace than ever before. Global competition impacts pricing, profit margins and resource availability; technology investments require capital but drive unprecedented efficiency and change the way people and processes work. Amidst it all, businesses must still manage uncertainty and mitigate risk in an ever-changing regulatory and legal environment.

KO attorneys work with a variety of consumer, commercial and industrial brands, helping them navigate major organizational milestones and manage day-to-day legal needs. Our work encompasses corporate and commercial matters including general counsel services, leases and other business agreements as well as IP protection and complex supply chain contracts. We support companies with a variety of credit transactions and funding deals. With deep understanding of manufacturing’s complexities, our attorneys serve as a seamless extension of your team.
