We are also experienced in assisting distribution and warehousing clients with diverse regulatory matters. For example, we conduct compliance audits and reviews. In doing so, we help ensure that our clients both comply with applicable laws and regulations and maintain the safety and efficiency of their operations. Where our clients have been accused of violating a regulation, we have provided the vigorous representation required to effectively address the charge.
Dispute Resolution Services
Drawing upon the skills of hundreds of litigators, Hinshaw handles diverse litigation for distribution and warehousing clients. Cases that we have handled have involved:

Our client’s business goals and needs guide us at all times when providing representation in lawsuits. We therefore carefully consider the best forum and method by which to resolve these disputes.
