Driving Change in the Automotive Industry
As the automobile industry gained strength in 2014, the firm’s Automotive Dealers practice continued to guide franchised dealers through a host of issues from floor plan financing and succession planning to dealing with hazardous waste handling and energy services procurement to facing future regulatory challenges and managing succession planning. Our firm’s labor and employment attorneys also represented several dealerships before the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities and before the Connecticut Department of Labor regarding wage and hour questions and audits, and updating and modernizing clients’ employment policies and programs. The firm and our clients continue to work together as catalysts for positive change in an industry that’s rooted in resiliency and progress..
“Pullman & Comley worked with us when we needed advice regarding the complex laws associated with human resource and employment issues. Over the years, they’ve provided us with great insights into employment leave rights, return to work policies and human resource strategies.”
-- Michael Mauro, President, Mauro Motors, Inc.
“This was a significant year for me given that I sold my interests in the automobile dealerships that I owned and operated. Over the years I have learned the significance of hiring the right counsel to represent me when I am undertaking major legal issues and the sale of my businesses falls into that category. Pullman & Comley was able to address all of the complex issues I faced in these transactions including merger and acquisition issues, real estate title issues, environmental reviews, contract negotiation and strategy planning. They were quite responsive and very knowledgeable about the auto industry. They really were a great partner to have throughout this entire process”
