Supply Chain Management pdf button image

A seamless supply chain that includes built-in contingencies for receiving, manufacturing, and delivering products is crucial to your company’s overall success and profitability. Streamlining that process, ensuring its regulatory compliance, and guarding against its interruption can challenge even the most innovative business leader or supply chain manager. This requires optimal quality assurance, price protection, risk assessment, compliance management, reputational guidance, and tax structures. At the same time, you need to prepare from the outset for challenges like disagreements with trading partners, distressed suppliers, or unstable customers.

Brach Eichler provides lawyers with experience in every aspect of procuring goods and services from vendors, managing supply chain risks, and getting products and services to customers.  Every step in the supply chain is important, and failure at any step – whether strategy, documentation, or performance – can adversely impact business objectives.

We know that margins depend upon creative, sophisticated, and efficient procurement processes and contracts and that a company’s reputation is dependent upon bringing safe, high-quality products to the marketplace.  We work to create efficiency and speed where possible, while successfully managing the significant risks that accompany buying goods and services, the development of new intellectual property with various providers, and manufacturing, transporting, and marketing products.

Our lawyers also proactively work to address distribution and supply chain issues before business decisions and disputes can lead to lawsuits. We understand the communication needed with distributors, vendors, and others to lessen the likelihood of litigation and to accomplish our clients’ goals quickly.
