Manufacturing, Distribution & Retail
Every market has its challenges, and the US market, while fertile, is litigious at every step of the path to market. Siting a manufacturing or distribution facility requires threading a path through environmental, land use, construction, employment, equipment procurement and installation issues. Manufacturing requires sourcing and distribution agreements, worker and contractor safety compliance, and insurance and risk-limitation and allocation agreements to determine who will bear risks associated with making and distributing the product. IP rights must be protected or licensed. The instructions and warnings accompanying the product must meet current standards and practices. Goods in transit may be lost to casualty or theft. Product users may claim the product was defective or deficient in suits for damages.
