The world is increasingly recognising that urgent action is needed to combat climate change. Cleantech has a key role to play in remediating the environmental impact caused by human activity. Innovations spanning multiple sectors like renewable energy and energy storage technology, smart homes and grids, transportation, water and waste management, agriculture and biofuels literally have the power to change the world.

Cleantech can be a challenging space to enter. Start-ups often face challenges in the time needed to develop and bring their innovations to the market and then grow their business to profitability, and in seeking the funding needed for these stages of development. Beck Greener understands that securing intellectual property rights is crucial for a business operating in the cleantech industry to prevent third party exploitation and to show investors that they can capture a large market share that will deliver a return on their investment.
Beck Greener works closely with Cleantech entrepreneurs and companies. Our attorneys’ wealth of experience and technical expertise across relevant disciplines including chemistry, electronics, software and engineering enable them to advise and assist clients in securing, protecting and defending intellectual property rights across the spectrum of Cleantech sectors. Many IPOs have implemented accelerated prosecution routes for patent applications in this area to stimulate innovation, and Beck Greener have experience in using these routes to get our clients patents at a very early stage, sometimes in as little as a year from an invention first being presented to us, giving our clients and their stakeholders clarity on what is protectable in their IP.
