In the second video of a three-part series, Fenwick attorney Paul Smith talks about the growing anticipation surrounding this strong, conductive and flexible material.

Why the excitement? Simply put, graphene is easy. It’s easily adaptable to a wide variety of applications, easy to work with and easy to integrate into existing products. For example, graphene can be easily mixed with plastics, making the combined material much stronger.
