Locke Lord is one of the leading energy law firms in the United States, and that experience lends itself to our IP practice for matters involving oil, gas and nuclear energy. We have handled multi-million dollar litigations, as well as prosecuted strategically important patent applications and rendered opinions on patent matters for publicly traded and privately held companies in a wide variety of domestic and international energy areas. Our highly skilled attorneys and advisors provide comprehensive guidance regarding all aspects of patent infringement, as well as validity and enforceability.
Many of our attorneys hold advanced degrees in nuclear, thermo-hydraulics, mechanical and electrical engineering, and had successful engineering careers in the energy sector prior to joining the Firm. Their technical and legal backgrounds, combined with firsthand business experience in the energy field, allows us to offer our clients a unique edge and particularly strong perspective and depth of understanding in protecting their intellectual property assets.
With traditional sources of energy becoming increasingly more expensive, the United States has seen a revival of nuclear energy. As Americans continue to debate how to best meet the future energy demands of the country, nuclear energy has become a viable option.
There are now more than 100 nuclear reactors producing 20 percent of the nation’s electricity – with no harmful greenhouse gases, thought to be one of the main causes of global warming – or other environmentally detrimental side effects. In this ever-changing and rapidly evolving nuclear energy sector, Locke Lord's attorneys have the unparalleled knowledge and industry experience (both fission and fusion) to enforce and protect our clients’ critical intellectual property rights in the United States, Europe, Asia and around the globe. In one instance, we served as co-counsel for a large electronics manufacturer in a patent infringement action involving a method of repairing nuclear reactors.
Our lawyers have also advised small companies to large, multinational conglomerates in the oil, gas, petrochemical, electric-generating, clean energy, and, most recently, hybrid automotive industries.
