3D Printing

Our lawyers help clients across industries handle regulatory, commercial, product safety and liability, intellectual property, international trade, insurance, data protection/cybersecurity, transactional and other issues around 3D Printing.

3D Printing, the production of a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, is revolutionizing manufacturing and brings new legal challenges and opportunities across a range of practice disciplines, including regulatory, commercial, product safety and liability, intellectual property, international trade, insurance, data protection/cybersecurity, and transactional.

Manufacturers and clients in the automotive, aerospace and defense, life sciences, consumer products, insurance, education, and numerous other industries have already seen 3D Printing embraced and integrated into production processes.

The lawyers at Hogan Lovells help clients tap into the new possibilities that 3D Printing offers. Our understanding of the legal frameworks, opportunities, issues, and threats helps you realize the full potential of this revolutionary shift in production, while minimizing the risks that accompany integrating new technology.
