With decades of industry experience, Dykema fields one of the most extensive automotive-related legal practices in the United States. The attorneys in our coast-to-coast network of offices lead the way, guiding our international roster of automotive industry clients through the many legal hurdles they face and, ultimately, to business success.

With more than 140 professionals with industry-related experience, Dykema’s Automotive Industry Group anticipates legal issues and meets client challenges long before they have grown into full-blown problems. Faced with the unique industry challenges created by the complexity of conducting business in a global marketplace, new and innovative supply chain structures, ever increasing regulatory restrictions, and pressure for “ever-greener” automobiles, our automotive industry clients get a true advantage from having our industry savvy lawyers on their side.

We regularly provide education and training to our clients on emerging legal issues critical to the automotive industry. Our presentations involve leading industry insiders, from both legal and business perspectives, in brainstorming sessions focused on forecasts, trends, and future challenges. Presentations have covered such topics as data privacy and security matters; recall and cost recovery actions, including consumer class actions, current legislative and regulatory issues impacting the automotive industry such as the “whistleblower” rules under the new FAST Act; and the changing applications of technology and mobility.
