Supporting the world's economy, our way
With manufacturing clients ranging in size and geographical reach, we have developed a wide knowledge of the industrials market and tailor our approach to best suit our clients' needs.
The industrial and manufacturing sector is a key driver of the world's economy, accounting for more than ten per cent of GDP and 56 per cent of exports in the UK alone, more than any other sector. We help our clients to maximise efficiencies and opportunities for growth while overcoming barriers to output.
Addleshaw Goddard operates in a variety of industrial sub-sectors from automotive to construction. We advise our clients on all aspects of their legal requirements from strategic acquisitions and disposals to procurement, disputes and logistics.
