Materials and Metallurgy

Our multi-disciplinary team of attorneys, including materials scientists, physicists, chemists and manufacturing engineers, deals with inventions relating to all aspects of the materials cycle and the application of materials.

For example, we handle inventions relating to new materials themselves, such as steel compositions and composites; new extraction methods such as mining and flotation; new processing techniques such as casting, thermomechanical working, and deposition/thin film growth techniques; and new materials applications such as bio-materials, nano-techology, shape memory alloys and superconductors.

We handle inventions relating to the whole spectrum of materials from ceramics to metals to polymers to semiconductors, for clients as diverse as medical device manufacturers, universities and other research institutions, steel and superalloy manufacturers, construction material suppliers and clients with an interest in engineering or electronics and electrical technology.
