Focus on Manufacturing

Manufacturing The Future


As the UK competes in an increasingly global economy, the manufacturing sector plays an important role in economic development both within the UK and on the international stage.

Whilst manufacturers provide a vital contribution to the UK’s GDP, Irwin Mitchell seeks to assist manufacturers in maximising opportunities for advancement and innovation.

Manufacturing is as relevant now as it was in the industrial revolution; in fact, the German government has described the computerisation of the manufacturing industry as a fourth wave industrial revolution, Industry 4.0.

The manufacturing sector has been developing at an increasing pace since manufacturers started using steam power, followed by electric power and subsequently utilisation of technical developments of the electronics industry. However, in a global economy companies must continue to develop their technology to protect their commercial longevity.

Along with the cultivation of manufacturing technology and techniques, the legal landscape has similarly adapted to the modern world. Irwin Mitchell’s Manufacturing Sector Group aims to advise manufacturing businesses on legal issues that may cause a commercial impact and to encourage businesses to consider new opportunities to further their business.

Irwin Mitchell is the largest UK law firm headquartered outside of London, operating out of 10 UK offices. Each office considers itself to be part of its local community and to provide a service tailored to business within the region. With our committed team, experienced in providing a full range of services for business, we are dedicated to helping businesses develop and succeed locally, nationally and internationally.
