Silicon Valley IP Lawyers Are Cleaning Up With Clean-Tech Clients

Other firms, like Foley & Lardner, which plans to formally launch a clean-tech practice this year, have gained entry into the field through existing clients. The firm says that there are currently more than a dozen attorneys representing clean-tech clients firmwide. Maebius, head of Foley's nanotech practice group, says many nanotech companies, including some of the firm's clients, are now aggressively expanding into the clean-tech space, attracted by the sudden influx of venture money. "It's been a real challenge for nanotech companies to find applications for their technology, and I think people are hopeful that the clean-tech market will breathe new life into the nanotech industry," says Maebius.
