Harness Dickey works diligently with manufacturing industry businesses to secure important intellectual property assets. We understand breakthrough manufacturing sciences and technologies, as well as what it takes to safeguard them.

Our attorneys are actively involved in all aspects of intellectual property law pertaining to the manufacturing industry. This is particularly evident in the continuum of patents we have successfully executed and, where necessary — enforced — on behalf of our manufacturing clients over decades of practice. We understand what it takes to own and monetize intellectual property involving a spectrum of highly specialized disciplines, a sampling of which can include:

  • Robotic handling
  • Petroleum refining
  • Conveying systems
  • Fastening
  • Adhesive bonding
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Automotive manufacturing
  • Chemical processing
  • Biotech manufacturing
  • Polymeric moldings
  • Metal stamping
  • Composite manufacturing and assembly

We are also involved in patenting, trademarking and assessing additive technologies such as 3D printing, laser sintering, as well as rapid prototyping and direct digital manufacturing. Additive technology is often applied to the construction of illustrative and functional prototypes or in tandem with rapid prototyping, and is increasingly used in series production. Our attorneys know what it takes to navigate beyond the challenges of securing such emerging technologies when it comes to protecting our client’s bottom line.

The legal counsel our attorneys deliver to manufacturing businesses is actual and real world — not just theoretical. It is critical to understand the manufacturing process in order to render poignant and sophisticated legal advice. Many of Harness Dickey attorneys have actual manufacturing experience. We bring the perspective of what really happens in a manufacturing plant to each and every matter in which we are involved.

Our Firm is located in economic regions that are hotbeds for manufacturing. Our attorneys have literally been there and done that, again and again. The tangible outcome of such experience and proximity to manufacturing companies is the delivery of consistently relevant and highly acute legal solutions that reflect the business, environmental and competitive conditions with which our clients are faced.
