Automotive Practice

Cantor Colburn has represented clients in the automotive industry for many years.  Because the automotive industry is one of our largest client sectors, we have an office based in the Detroit area for close and easy access and support of some of our largest automotive clients.  Our Automotive Practice is headed up by attorneys that have spent years working in the industry for OEM, Tier One and other industry participants.  We have in-depth technical capabilities in virtually all automotive technical areas including powertrain (diesel, gasoline, hybrid and electric), chassis, body, interior and control systems including an intense focus on autonomous systems.  As one of the nation’s first firms with an autonomous vehicle specialty, our attorneys, agents, and technical advisors have extensive experience in all aspects of this very advanced automotive technology.  We understand the automotive industry – not only the law but the industry's practices and people.  Our clients rely on our advice for all types of intellectual property matters from the acquisition and protection of IP rights (patents, trademarks and copyrights) to highly complex opinions and transactional matters.
