Fitch, Even, Tabin & Flannery draws on its capabilities in multiple disciplines, from mechanical and chemical engineering to intellectual property enforcement, to protect its clients’ environmental-related technology. Our clients are market leaders in providing products and processes for treating wastewater, desalinating salt water, reclaiming grey water for irrigation use, water conservation, processing exhaust emissions associated with food production, and recycling construction materials. Fitch Even offers its clients comprehensive protection strategies at every stage, from patent procurement to licensing and final enforcement.
Multidisciplinary patent prosecution skills are a hallmark of Fitch Even’s counseling of environmental engineering clients. For one example, working with a major manufacturer of wastewater treatment mixing systems, our lawyers drew on their knowledge of mechanical engineering and hydraulics to obtain patents covering the unique reliability and high-volume capacity of this technology. Later, these patents were successfully enforced. This is just one of many examples demonstrating our focus on the correct aspects of environmental-related technology to effectively protect the client’s business.
In a business sector where complex products and intellectual property strategies are at the core of success, Fitch Even’s integrated patent portfolio and enforcement strategies ensure that environmental engineering clients receive maximum protection at every stage of development and commercialization.
