For more than a century, Kerr Russell has been serving and has helped grow the U.S. and global auto industry. As the industry continues to evolve, so have the capabilities and services provided by the firm to its auto-related clients. Our wealth of attorneys, with decades of automotive industry background, have assisted companies who want to survive, thrive and grow since Kerr Russell began its work in Detroit in the late 1800s.
We now help suppliers and automotive companies in countries around the world and are working actively with manufacturers to support vehicle research and development including creation of a national network of electric charging stations.
So what sets us apart? We have made a practice of getting to know you and being a part of your team. We get what keeps auto suppliers and dealership management up at night and we make it our goal to not only problem solve, but to strategically assist our clients in setting a course for the future. We provide our clients with practical legal solutions that help them manage risks in the complex industry in which they compete. We work with clients as a strategic partner to help keep their supply chain healthy, their customer relationships intact, and their products safe and compliant with the myriad regulations that affect the industry. And because we’re not the biggest firm in town, we’re more flexible and accessible than most, and never hand a client off, whether they be in Tennessee, California, Europe, Asia or Detroit.
