A dedicated transatlantic team
We’re proud to be one of the few firms in the US and UK with a dedicated chemicals sector team stacked with experienced lawyers able to address your needs across the entire business cycle. Our experience extends across the full breadth of the industry, with unparalleled insight into key sub sectors including agrochemical and petrochemical.
In the US, we provide clients with litigators who are as familiar with the chemical industry as they are with the courtroom. We represent clients in federal, state and administrative courts on civil and criminal matters. We have a wealth of experience representing chemical companies in environmental and toxic torts as well as in products liability cases and intellectual property and commercial disputes.
In the US and UK, we support chemical companies in negotiating often complex commercial arrangements with suppliers, distributors, customers, and other commercial partners with a view towards allocating risk in accordance with industry standards. When our clients expand through mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures we assemble cross-practice teams with deep chemical industry experience to facilitate a successful transaction.
Intellectual property, real estate and more
We also offer exceptional counsel in the US and UK in nearly every aspect of intellectual property law. Our lawyers advise on strategic and complex technology transactions, licensing, patent protection, portfolio analysis, and other contentious and transactional intellectual property matters including post-grant review proceedings at the USPTO. We also represent clients in patent and trademark litigation, as well as matters related to product and process development.
This team is also prepared to manage your real estate matters. Whether it’s a construction or engineering project, complex site or property matter, our lawyers will provide you with legal clarity and a practical approach that balances risk and business goals.
Our lawyers deliver results because they’ve taken the time to truly invest in your industry. They have a real practical and commercial understanding of what it takes for you to be successful, making them exactly the kind of legal adviser you want at your side.
