Brand-Name Goods and Services

Advising and representing national and international manufacturers and distributors of brand-name goods and services is a core aspect of SCHIEDERMAIR.

We advise clients on the entire life cycle of brand-name goods and services. More specifically, we assist clients with product development and regulatory issues, with protecting intellectual property rights, and with manufacturing and production matters.

We also advise our clients in connection with product launches, legal advertising issues, and also on questions that arise in relation to the distribution of brand-name goods and services.

Finally, SCHIEDERMAIR’s attorneys are well-experienced when it comes to advising clients on product liability issues and product recalls. If necessary, we also litigate on behalf of our clients on matters such as disputes with competitors on distribution matters, unfair competition issues, or issues involving regulatory authorities.
