Clean Technology/ Intellectual Property Issues
The Pacific Northwest's unique blend of a general sustainability ethos, high-tech experience, and entrepreneurial spirit has resulted in a disproportionate number of area businesses involved with clean technologies that work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy standards.
Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt's intellectual property attorneys have significant experience representing our cleantech clients in all aspects of intellectual property acquisition and enforcement. Our attorneys have assisted clients in advancing energy efficiencies in a variety of contexts such as promoting energy-efficiency standards for data centers and computing systems; developing state-of-the-art, low-power computing platforms; and innovating vapor fuel technologies for combustion engines. Many of our attorneys have also assisted clients' efforts related to renewable energy technologies in the wind, tidal, and biofuel industries.
