Manufacturers / Licensors

Manufacturers have a wide variety of distribution chain models to choose from. Maslyn Law PLC has experience with all of the most common forms of distribution chains -- e.g., distributors, dealers, licensees and sales agents. We also have experience with other distribution models that are used less frequently -- like consignment sales and private label agreements. Our solid foundation in franchising allows us to identify potential trouble spots -- including situations which may inadvertently be deemed to create a franchise relationship. We can then help you adapt your distribution plans in a way that best accomplishes your business goals.

Your relationships with your distribution chain may also be regulated by state laws particular to your industry. We can help you manage your dealer/distributor relationships in compliance with these laws.  We have represented clients in many of these industries, including:

  • Petroleum Products
  • Construction Equipment
  • Power Tools
  • Industrial Equipment
  • Farm Equipment
  • Forestry Equipment
  • Appliances
  • Alcoholic Beverages

Our familiarity with a wide variety of industry practices and the particular requirements under the various industry-specific state statutes provide us with a solid foundation on which to assist our clients in modernizing their agreements with their dealers and distributors. Internationally, we provide manufacturers with advice relating to their dealers and distributors throughout the world.
