Reinier Smit

Before beginning his career as an attorney, Reinier had the unique opportunity to work as a research and development consultant for a company in Waynesboro, Virginia. With a degree in mechanical engineering and a concentration in bioengineering, Reinier was involved in design, manufacturing, and production. He was listed as co-inventor on three patents while working in Virginia.

In 2019, he spent two weeks in China to visit some of the largest electronics and manufacturing exhibitions in the world, the Hi-Tech Fair in Shenzhen and the Dongguan Machinery Exhibition. Reinier has acquired unique experience and knowledge in plastic injection molding, foreign and domestic manufacturing relations, negotiations with distributors, and high scale production and shipping. His positive spirit and years of experience have led to establishing a very close network of manufacturers, engineers, and distributors all over the world.

Reinier has also worked in the music licensing industry, where he completed license requests and synch agreements for various televisions shows, concert events, podcasts, and albums. He loves listening to all types of music, and you’ll often find him playing something in the office.

Early in 2020, Reinier was hired by CarnesWarwick to further our goal of ensuring success for our clients and their companies. Reinier’s focus is on business formation and the intellectual property associated with various businesses.

Behind the scenes, Reinier enjoys running around Charlotte, hiking in the Appalachian Mountains, and flying his DJI Phantom 4 drone everywhere he travels.
