Nanotechnology, the development and use of nanometer-sized structures, has the potential to transform various traditional technical arts, including materials, computers, chemicals, biotechnology, medicine, semiconductors, optics, and mechanical devices. Our Nanotechnology group includes patent attorneys with advanced degrees and scientific experience in these fields who are well suited to counsel our clients concerning their nanotech inventions.

We have been securing and advising on patent rights in nanotechnology for many years, in the diverse disciplines of carbon fullerenes and nanotubes, scanning tunneling microscopes, semiconductors, immunoassays, nanoparticles, nanocapsules, biosensors, optics, thermoelectric devices, chemistry, amino acids, and targeting vectors. Our nanotechnology work encompasses prosecuting patent applications, providing opinions, and litigating patents for clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to universities and venture capitalists.
