Central and Eastern Europe is an attractive manufacturing base for global manufacturing groups. Investors benefit from attractive investment incentives and available EU funds, rapidly developing infrastructure, access to Western European markets, and competitive labour rates. Our teams can work with you to navigate the varied and often shifting regulatory landscape across the region and help you achieve your growth targets and business goals. We advise manufacturing businesses across a wide range of sectors on new investment as well as their day-to-day operational issues. We have recently advised on one of the largest greenfield investments into the region to date.
Working with manufacturing clients every day, we understand the global pressures on your business – from pressure on profit margins to the effective management of supply chains and continuous investment in research and development. It is in this context that we provide legal guidance on the evolving legal, regulatory and tax landscape – providing legal and tax solutions which fit your commercial priorities. Our multi-disciplinary teams based across 17 jurisdictions in the region bring together expertise and practical experience in the manufacturing sector across the full range of practice areas, including supply and distribution, subcontracting, product liability, anti-trust, outsourcing, employment, M&A, EU funds and state aid, tax, intellectual property, technology, and disputes.
