Since its discovery in 2004, the carbon allotrope Graphene has attracted significant attention from the scientific and manufacturing communities for its unprecedented light weight, high strength and interesting electronic properties. With seemingly limitless possibilities surrounding the applications of graphene and the emergence of a "land grab" to capitalize on these opportunities, entities in this space are increasingly faced with the need to safeguard their intellectual capital. Leveraging Fenwick's unique technical background and multipractice environment, we provide strategic counsel to graphene clients in patent portfolio development, international filing strategy and litigation matters.
