International Automotive Supply

Warner Norcross & Judd’s automotive attorneys have been keeping international auto suppliers ahead of the curve for decades.
Located in the heart of the North American automotive industry, Warner represents more than 200 domestic and international auto suppliers who do business in the U.S. We’re unique among automotive attorneys because we represent only auto suppliers – not manufacturers. As such, we have extensive cross-border and international experience with automotive supply issues. We know contract law, terms and conditions and the complex nature of the relationships between auto suppliers and manufacturers. 
Several of our clients operate in both insidea and outside of the U.S. Here are some examples of our experience with them:

  • Lead outside counsel for the North American subsidiary of a German auto parts manufacturer in $250 million dispute with OEM and other matters
  • Principal outside counsel for an automotive piston manufacturer and supplier to North America, South America, Europe and Asia on matters related to contracts, litigation and general business
  • Legal counsel to the Original Equipment Suppliers Association
  • Lead litigation counsel for a national automotive finance company ; responsible for all commercial litigation in the eastern U.S.
  • Counsel to U.S.-based global powertrain manufacturer in general corporate matters and in acquiring, developing, leasing and selling real estate
And because we’re a large corporate firm, our experience is vast and varied. Here are some examples that may appeal to auto parts suppliers with international business interests:

  • Economic Development: We’ve drafted brownfield legislation and secured economic incentives for clients.
  • Environmental: We’ve drafted solid waste management legislation and clean-up laws and have represented Fortune 100 clients with CERCLA and RCRA sites.
  • Immigration: We were special immigration counsel in the sale of a U.S. company and when another company outsourced functions to Asia.
  • Litigation: We’ve successfully represented suppliers and manufacturers in myriad disputes and have been recognized by Chambers USA as a top litigation firm.
  • Labor and Employment: We’ve advised Fortune 100 companies on the design and administration of benefit plans.
