Electronics and High Tech


Our team of professionals in nanotechnology includes experts trained in advanced sciences that underlie nanotech, such as optoelectronics and materials science, biotechnology, optoelectronics and semiconductor devices, and fabrication methods. Our team comprises engineers and scientists with extensive industry experience in nanotech. They can help you protect and commercialize your inventions and monetize them.

Our long history includes representing IP needs in nascent industries such as biotechnology, bioinformatics, and software. Emerging nanotech companies and institutions share many IP issues. Technology transfer, patent interferences, and licenses are just a few of the IP-related legal issues.

A lot of the nanotech industry’s success is dependent on the transfer to private sector university-funded inventions. These transfers are dominated by the Bayh Dole Act. Our IP professionals have decades-long experience in licensing and university/industry relations. They can assist with licensing innovative nanotech patents and portfolios from universities, as well as negotiate intra-industry agreements.

We have been representing clients in the nanotechnology industry in areas including:

  • Biosensors
  • Microfluidics
  • Nanocomputing
  • Nanoelectronics
  • Nanomaterials
  • Quantum dots
  • Semiconductors

The nanotechnology team provides a complete range of IP services including patent preparation and prosecution; litigation; portfolio strategy and development; technology transfer agreements (and licenses); patent office litigation (including interfering); and strategic counseling.
