Find Lawyers in Seattle, Washington for CleanTech Law

Practice Area Overview

“Clean Tech” is an abbreviation for the phrase “clean technology.” Clean tech industries feature a diverse range of products, services and processes, typically, for developing, commercializing, and regulating the natural environment. A simpler and perhaps more illustrative way to think of the industry is that it tends to cover issues which involve one or more of the classical elements — earth, air, fire, or water. 

For example, clean tech would include understanding and applying regulations for harvesting natural resources from the Athabasca oil sands in Alberta, Canada. It would also cover a development agreement for genomic research to produce biochemicals and biofuels to be used under the applicable European laws. 

The transactional side includes traditional areas such as financing, technology licensing and transfers, intellectual property strategy and protection, regulatory compliance, sustainable company policies and charter documents, product sourcing and distribution deals, tax and other incentives for energy and green projects, and monetization of carbon offsets, to name a few. The dispute resolution side includes environmental and scientific policy debates and the related legislative process, administrative hearings, mediation, arbitration, and, of course, litigation.
