Holmes & Hills Solicitors forms team of manufacturing sector specialists

Posted 12/02/2018

Holmes & Hills Solicitors has formed a team of legal specialists to service and inform its growing number of commercial clients operating in the manufacturing and engineering industries.

Holmes & Hills has an enviable client base of manufacturing and engineering companies based across the East of England which service national and international markets.  The sector’s success over the past year is well documented and this has contributed to a growth in demand for specialist legal services from operators within the industry.

Recognising that Holmes & Hills has an established and growing client base of such businesses and that lawyers within our team have built-up expert knowledge of the industry and the legal problems businesses in the field face, over a number of years, we realised we were perfectly positioned to offer expert legal advice to SME manufacturing and engineering businesses in the region. The team's experience also includes acting as Senior Legal Counsel to a US listed manufacturing company based in Brussels.


Holmes & Hills’ team of manufacturing solicitors comprises:

Rachel Astill – Corporate & Commercial Solicitor & Associate

Thomas Farrell – Litigation Solicitor

Wendy Martin – Commercial Property Solicitor & Associate

David Dixey – Employment Law specialist

Angela Watson – Debt Recovery Executive

Commercial relationships within the manufacturing and engineering sectors can often be complex, involving international supply and distribution chains, high value and long-term contracts, as well as contracts and agreements with significantly larger suppliers and customers  - with their own in-house legal teams protecting their position.  In this context, your business requires expert legal advice from solicitors experienced not only in the law, but in the nuances of your industry and in advising your peers.
