Rothwell Figg advises on all aspects of IP rights for green tech innovations, including acquisition of patents, trademarks and copyrights, licensing, enforcement and defense, due diligence review, and counseling. Our subject matter experience with Green Tech IP is broad, including environmentally friendly products; smart grids; hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs); pollution control systems; clean, alternative, and renewable energy sources and storage solutions; energy efficiency technologies; diesel and biofuels; and clean water, land, and air initiatives, as well as a variety of other cutting-edge discoveries that promulgate this industry and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Our firm has worked with clients of all sizes and at every stage of the business lifecycle to commercialize sustainable products and services across nearly all technological and scientific sectors. We advise on developing and managing IP portfolios, including patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret rights, while working with our clients to minimize the environmental footprint. We understand the issues associated with carbon value and licensing transactions, as well as the major impact it can have on government funding for IP rights, access to capital markets, and meeting emerging renewable energy standards.

Like our green tech industry clients, we are always seeking better ways of doing things while using fewer resources that provide a greater return on investment—particularly in leveraging and monetizing intangible assets that result in emission reductions and the creation and adoption of sustainable technologies. Our team focuses on identifying and solving IP-related problems for the individuals, businesses, and institutions that discover, invent, and market all variety of green tech. We deliver broad IP protection for our client’s environmentally friendly products and services by distinguishing the unique features and functions in an industry that is considered inherently non-conventional.

Green tech IP reflects a compilation of science and technology that can range from chemical compounds to algorithms and involving varying technological and scientific disciplines, such as chemistry, biology, electronics, and software. Our firm brings all this experience to the table, with lawyers who are technically skilled, trained, and/or educated in chemistry, biology, genetic engineering, electrical and computer engineering, software/programming, and the like.

Our legal counsel parallels each client’s long-term and short-term goals and vision. We are dedicated not only to understanding the technology involved, but also to achieving the client’s ultimate end game. We are committed to delivering far more comprehensive and “bigger picture” legal solutions when it comes to protecting and exploiting our client’s innovations, attracting investors, and handling disputes that may arise through litigation and dispute resolution.
