Business, taken personally.

Manufacturing & Engineering.

We provide our clients with the legal support that is not only pragmatic and commercial but is also sector specific.

As Endeavour Partnership is itself a ‘smoggy’ based in the industrial heartland that is the Tees Valley, we have huge experience of and expertise in dealing with clients in the chemicals, pharmaceuticals, steel, other manufacturing and engineering industries not only in the Tees Valley but throughout the UK and the rest of the world.

We are accordingly very much ‘at home’ when dealing with manufacturing and engineering clients whose businesses we well understand and prioritise meeting their legal needs.

We provide our manufacturing and engineering clients with legal support that is not only pragmatic and commercial but is also sector specific, so that it includes, by way of example: negotiating manufacturing and supply contracts and manufacturing facility construction contracts, helping them to protect, exploit and defend their IP; helping them to resolve their disputes which are often of high value and/or complex; and dealing with industrial heritage land issues.

Our clients include not only owner managed businesses but also multinational companies who operate throughout the world; our largest client in this sector is a US company based in Portland, Oregon.

Not only do we provide sector specific advice and assistance but also a full range of general legal services that are equally relevant to the manufacturing and engineering sector.
