I deal extensively on relationships between suppliers and distributors. As an advisor, we work on agreements with the parties, reviewing obligations and how business is actually carried out, particularly when expectations are not met and disputes arise. We help set up distribution systems for suppliers. And, we have consulted with distributors. We also advise on brands and their value in the marketplace, in distribution territories. This involves the economics of both marketing and distribution, sales assets, goals and objectives, incentives, promotions, retailer relationships, performance on the street, etc. We have done this not only for brand and distribution clients in food and beverage, but also in litigation in which I have personally served as an expert witness.
I have run a contract drilling company, designed rigs and used workover and completion rigs many thousands of times.
