Nanotechnology and Microtechnology
Nanotechnology crosses the fields of biology, chemistry, physics and material science. The field has potential applications in electronics, medicine, communications, manufacturing, and beyond. Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt has brought together a key group of lawyers from our corporate, intellectual property and patent, environmental science, and products liability practice groups to form a multidisciplinary Nanotechnology/Microtechnology Practice Group.
The formation of the Nanotechnology/Microtechnology Practice Group at Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt follows formation of ONAMI -- an alliance among Oregon's three largest public universities, the Governor's office, the state's congressional delegation, legislature and industry that has targeted a key new area of economic opportunity for the Pacific Northwest.

This unique collaboration among industry, academe, federal and state government and the legal community will be helpful in building a new generation of companies based on strong technology and innovation.
