Consumer Products + Manufacturing

As a premier legal services provider, Farella offers an ideal, multidisciplinary platform for consumer product companies and manufacturers alike. Our clients come to us for our ability to deliver solutions that are tailored to their distinct challenges, and rely on us to help them establish or sustain long-term, profitable growth.


For product manufacturers, distributors, designers, raw material suppliers, fabricators, growers, importers, retailers, and more, we address an array issues they face, including product litigation, development, branding, supply chain, environmental, real estate, regulatory, intellectual property, marketing, distribution, and general commercial issues.

Whether the enterprise involves consumer products, pharmaceuticals, or medical devices; agricultural or industrial chemicals; beverage, wine, food, or cannabis; construction materials and systems, home furnishings, or apparel, we understand the legal and commercial landscape of the consumer product and manufacturing industries and can provide an expertise not found in many Northern California law firms.

We offer personal attention and serve as trusted advisors—invested in our clients’ successes.  Being mindful of the bottom line, our client teams are smartly-staffed and nimble, led by one or more Farella partners who stay engaged in every facet of the work. We work hard to ensure that all client needs are met, efficiently, and that questions are addressed, responsively.
