Automotive Dealerships

It’s not how many years we’ve been doing this – it’s that we haven’t been doing the same thing for years.

Right now, automotive dealerships face unique challenges, including drastic changes to how consumers shop and how mobility is developing and being redefined. With new issues comes the need for creative solutions. Offit Kurman’s team of automotive dealership attorneys have extensive experience in the automotive industry, but what defines them is their ability to apply creative solutions for their dealership clients. Knowing the industry is a given but devising strategies to allow dealerships to successfully operate in a dramatically changed climate is where Offit Kurman attorneys are unmatched.

Risk Mitigation

Litigation

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses.

When it's time to fight, we’re all in. Offit Kurman’s automotive dealership attorneys understand that it's not just the moments in court, but all the time leading up to those moments that wins cases.
