Since the formation of the firm, Stahl Cowen attorneys have provided innovative solutions that enable manufacturers to anticipate and address legal challenges, overcome business obstacles, meet strategic objectives, and position themselves for success.

We guide them on mergers and acquisitions, managing supply chains, and evolving real estate needs for their businesses. We help them protect their intellectual property and implement corporate compliance programs and monitor ongoing performance.

And we work with them to raise capital and finance operations and equipment, navigate the North American Free Trade Act (NAFTA) and other treaties to sell and distribute their products, and respond promptly and decisively to competitive and regulatory pressures in an evolving marketplace.

For example, we recently assisted a client in leasing a large tract of land for an Arkansas production facility in a high unemployment area. With our assistance, the client was able to take advantage of several tax credits tied to hiring and state grants for certain infrastructure improvements. In addition, we helped a steel company sell then lease back its manufacturing space to free up capital.

We have broad experience providing solutions to manufacturers across the industry, ranging in size from $1 million companies to $1 billion entities, and have particular experience assisting businesses in the medical devices, metal products, packaging materials – including food packaging – lubricants, and wood products sectors.

Our clients rely on our sound advice, business judgement, and practical perspective to guide decisions, resolve disputes, and plan for the future.
