What we do:

At Muckle, we don’t go about things the same way as everyone else. From the outset, our objective has been to combine City-quality advice with the affable, collegiate feel of our North East home. And many of our clients have been kind enough to tell us we’ve pulled that off.

There are, of course, many facets to commercial law. Fortunately, our expertise is available in them all. So, whatever the issue, we can make sure you get the right advice from the right people when you need it.

Working with manufacturers

We provide innovative and commercial legal advice on a wide range of manufacturing issues to a wide range of manufacturing clients. Manufacturers operate in a fast-moving world. That’s why it’s important to have a legal team that is up-to-speed on all the challenges facing the sector.

Our clients range from start-ups producing cutting edge technology to multi-national corporations including CAV Ice Protection, Thomas Swan, AAF International and Zytronic.

Our specialisms include:

  • Funding
  • Supply, distribution and other commercial agreements
  • Intellectual property
  • Buying and selling a business
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Raising finance
  • Property
  • Debt recovery and disputes
  • Employment and trade union negotiations
  • Procurement
  • Directors’ duties and company secretarial services
  • Competition law

“We have worked with the Muckle team for a number of years on a combination of contractual, IP and HR related matters and have always found their approach and advice pragmatic and commercially sound.”

Bob Sharpe

Senior Vice President (Commercial & Operations) at Meiyume
