Foley’s Nanotechnology Industry Team guides clients through continually changing legal and business challenges and opportunities. We understand both the science and the law needed to bring our clients’ ideas from concept to commercialization. Foley provides the full range of legal services and business counsel needed throughout the nanotechnology life cycle.

As nanotechnology increasingly finds applications in cleantech, Foley has adopted a multidisciplinary approach to serving the needs of these increasingly overlapping fields. Our attorneys have extensive experience assisting clients who are developing new green energy technologies, including solar, battery cells, smart grid technology, nanotube electronics, and others that span both green energy production methods and new, efficient energy initiatives and processes.
