Case Study: Gillig LLC

Gould & Ratner represented Gillig LLC in the $100-million construction of a new manufacturing and assembly plant, warehouse and office complex in Livermore, California. Gillig is the largest transit bus manufacturer in the United States. Our real estate lawyers assisted Gillig in finding, vetting and ultimately purchasing a large site about 20 miles away from the existing plant. We counseled on a variety of issues involved in the acquisition, including zoning, permitting, environmental review and financing. We also helped with the planned divestiture of most of the legacy Hayward sites once the new plant was completed. Our construction team advised Gillig on numerous pre-construction issues, including the required earthquake-resistant design and drafting all construction contracts. We also provided counsel on claims management and administration. Gillig is already planning for future expansion and our lawyers are advising them on a variety of options.
