Clean Tech

The patent agents, biochemists, biologist, chemists, chemical engineers and lawyers of our cleantech practice group conduct patentability and landscape searches, and draft and prosecute patent and industrial design applications, as well as trademark and copyright applications. They also render patent validity and infringement opinions.

They offer a wide range of services relating to patents and IP with respect to technologies reducing negative impacts on the environment, water, air and soil. They particularly focus on renewable energy, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and biofuels. This group is often called upon to contribute its expertise in valuation and due diligence matters during the transfer, acquisition and financing of companies.

The lawyers of this group specialize in drafting and negotiating commercial contracts relating to research and development, joint ventures, consortiums, licensing and financing. They also have extensive experience in drafting and negotiating agreements that companies in this sector typically require. In addition, they advise clients on matters of litigation.
