Chadbourne & Parke LLP to Hold Conference on Nanotechnology Law and Commerce

New York, NY | Posted on January 3rd, 2008

Examining the fast-growing, interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology from a business and legal perspective, this event will bring together leading entrepreneurs, investors, insurers, regulators, academics, policymakers, corporate counsel and other stakeholders to share their insight and perspective on the various issues and forces most likely to shape global commerce in nanotechnology. The event begins at 1:00 p.m. and concludes at 6:00 p.m., followed by a reception.

Opening remarks will be provided by Chadbourne counsel George E. Pataki, the former Governor of New York. During his tenure, Gov. Pataki was instrumental in bringing a nanotechnology research center, and the first college of nanotechnology in the nation, to the State University of New York at Albany (SUNY-Albany).

"Nanotechnology, basically manipulating atoms and molecules at the level of 1 to 100 nanometers to make materials and products with novel physical properties, is the future and it is now," said Chadbourne litigation partner David L. Wallace, who organized and will chair the conference. "It offers enormous promise and challenge -- both commercially and legally. This event will bring together leaders to discuss the issues likely to animate nanotechnology's development and direction."

The meeting will draw on Chadbourne's experience in practice areas relevant to nanotechnology, including finance, products liability, litigation, intellectual property, insurance and reinsurance, energy and regulation, and environmental matters.
