The manufacturing sector remains an important and significant part of the UK economy. The North West has always played a strong part in the UK’s manufacturing sector and in recent years it has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence. This performance was driven by strengths in the pharmaceutical, aerospace, automotive and food and drink sectors where the North West has a strong concentration.

Lawyers within our manufacturing sector team regularly advise businesses trading within the UK and internationally ranging from operations with a national coverage, SMEs, entrepreneurs and start-up ventures. We have extensive experience advising clients trading within diverse sub-sectors within the manufacturing sector, including building materials, textiles, household goods, industrial equipment, food and drink and healthcare products.
