Abstract:
The anticipated impact of nanotechnology upon society is frequently referred to as the "second
industrial revolution." Recognizing the potential that nanotechnology has to
affect business and industry in the near future, Barnes & Thornburg LLP has
established a Nanotechnology Practice Group to continue its current work in
the area and assist businesses involved in seeking new applications of
nanotechnology.

Barnes & Thornburg LLP Establishes Practice Group Focused on Nanotechnology Opportunities

INDIANAPOLIS, IN | Posted on June 9th, 2008

Nanotechnology refers to a field of applied science and technology that
relates to the control of matter on the atomic or molecular scale, generally
100 nanometers or smaller, and the fabrication of devices or materials that
lie within that size range. The firm's attorneys already are advising clients
on nanotechnology's applications in a variety of fields, including in
biotechnology, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, electrical engineering and
environmental.


The practice group, co-chaired by Philip J. Faccenda, Jr., a partner in
the firm's South Bend office, and Todd Vare, a partner in the firm's
Indianapolis office, includes attorneys from a variety of disciplines,
including intellectual property, business, environmental, biotech,
governmental services, entrepreneurial services and litigation.


"Our clients increasingly are investigating how nanotechnology can be
brought to market in a variety of applications - from biotech to textiles,
manufacturing processes to environmental remediation," Vare said. "This new
group gives us a more integrated approach to helping clients use
nanotechnology to advance their business interests in their particular
industry sectors."


The announcement comes on the heels of a seminar hosted by Barnes &
Thornburg that addressed the possibilities of nanotechnology from the
perspectives of a Barnes & Thornburg attorney as well as professors from
Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame. In addition, the recent
announcement of the new Midwest Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery (MIND)
at the University of Notre Dame has raised the profile of nanotechnology and
its applications, especially in the Midwest.


"Barnes & Thornburg recognizes the impact the new institute will have on
businesses throughout Indiana and the Midwest," Faccenda said. "We want to do
everything we can to provide helpful counsel on the issues related to
nanotechnology."
