Leading the Way with LED Innovators
Innovators and strategics are utilizing LED technology in virtually every sector and in every lighting application. Home, health, business, automotive — the possibilities are endless. These same innovators and strategics are turning to Mintz for creative and comprehensive legal and business counsel across all manner of investments, acquisitions and dispositions, and technology-based transactions, and to protect their innovations. For example, Signify, formerly Philips Lighting, relies on Mintz for investments and acquisition transactions, and Mintz protected Litepanels Inc., a leader in theatrical lighting, from infringement by overseas importers.Share
Transactions, Innovation Protection and More
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are essentially semiconductors, and Mintz has one of the most deeply engaged yet nimble legal teams in the semiconductor space. We know the cutting-edge technology and how it got here. We know the players in the market. We understand the dynamic and global nature of competition in the space. And we work closely with the companies focused on evolving LED technology into even more efficient and creative uses. When first developed, LEDs were used most often as indicator lamps to replace less-efficient and heat-producing incandescent bulbs. Today, high light output innovations in visible, ultraviolet, and infrared wavelengths have enabled the use of LEDs across all industries, and the energy efficiency offered by the technology is helping to drive its rapid integration across all sectors.
Light Emitting Diodes are semiconductors that convert the flow of electrons to light. The Mintz IP team knows the industry inside and out and has more experience working in the semiconductor space than most, including in manufacturing and packaging systems, as well as in design and use.
Mintz has been working in the sustainable energy field for more than a decade, helping entrepreneurs and large companies advance technologies related to the development of new sources of energy and its more efficient use. We advise companies seeking to access energy via wind, water, and other renewable sources, and work with companies seeking to develop systems that help to use less energy or to increase the benefit derived from the same energy in industrial, office, and home settings.
Teams across the firm handle all manner of legal work for companies innovating in the light emitting diode space – from start-ups through global corporations.
