Materials and Nanotechnology

Our Materials and Nanotechnology group draws on the experience of 50 patent attorneys and agents


Given the explosion in innovation in the nanotechnology sector, there have been advances in cosmetics, consumer electronics, medical devices and many other areas. These advances have prompted many new patent applications as companies seek to protect their most important innovations.

Pearl Cohen’s Materials and Nanotechnology group draws on the experience of more than 50 patent attorneys and agents authorized to practice before the USPTO, the EPO, the UK Intellectual Property Office and the Israeli Patent Office (IPO). As such, we have a successful track record in helping clients obtain worldwide patent protection for their nanotechnologies, including:

  • Nanoparticles
  • Polymeric materials
  • Semiconductor devices

Furthermore, many of our patent attorneys, agents and scientific advisers bring advanced degrees from the world’s top academic institutions, as well as practical, hands-on laboratory knowledge or industrial experience. With materials science an interdisciplinary field, interfacing often with chemistry, biology, electrical engineering, and physics, we are well placed to handle these emerging discoveries.

Our critical wealth of understanding helps universities, research institutions and start-ups make the transition from the laboratory to commercialize their inventions, advising on strategy, licensing, and ensuring the patents stand up to the challenges of litigation.

As materials and nanotechnology create a vast range of important legal IP challenges that are cross-border in nature, clients benefit from our multi-dimensional approach and seamless cooperation across our global offices, a crucial advantage for businesses looking for one firm to handle their cross-border patent portfolios in this field.
