Clean Energy


The clean energy industry has seen exponential growth based on rapid adoption of electric vehicles, wind turbines and other products and systems that address the global urgency to decarbonize. As more players enter the clean energy industry, it is more important than ever to gain an IP advantage to effectively compete and provide an edge in IP disputes between competitors. 

For nearly 20 years, Lerner David has played an active role in the clean energy industry. We have deep institutional knowledge in the field of lithium-ion batteries. We have procured thousands of patents involving state-of-the art technologies concerning cathode active materials, anode active materials, conductive materials, electrolytes, separators, binders, electrode assemblies, cell cases, and automobile battery packs. We have also gained invaluable experience in technologies using renewable plant-based materials.

Lerner David offers its full range of IP services within the energy industry.

Representative Matters

For a Global Fortune 500 company, we successfully defended its lithium-ion battery patent in IPR proceedings.

For a global leader in providing renewable energy solutions, we collaborated with researchers, engineers and IP managers to establish patent portfolios covering next generation batteries.

For a Global Fortune 500 company, we strategized to i) protect its innovations, ii) evaluate and manage risk by analyzing for freedom to operate, iii) monetize IP via licensing, and iv) enforce IP rights in the Courts and PTAB.
