Manufacturing

Motieka & Audzevičius' lawyers are committed to understanding how our manufacturing businesses operate and to offering the best legal solutions for the challenges posed to industrial companies. The manufacturing sector is highly disparate, and lawyers in this practice act for a wide range of leading manufacturing companies. What the aforementioned clients have in common are the issues that arise in managing and developing businesses, and thus our lawyers draw upon their technical expertise and industry knowledge to come up with workable solutions.

Manufacturers have always been in the business of balancing the trade-offs: revenue enhancement and cost containment; customisation and standardisation; competition and collaboration. By adapting successfully to ever changing market conditions and capitalising on new opportunities we are firmly focused on developing and executing manufacturing strategies to bring tangible results to our clients.

Main clients include Brolis Semiconductors, Axis Industries, Dvarčionių Keramika, Fima, and a large producer of household appliances.
