Medical Devices And Intellectual Property

Our medical device team can help businesses that create products intended for diagnosis or treatment of disease or injury, such as MRIs and other scanning devices, as well as syringes and fluid handling equipment.

Designers, inventors and manufacturers of medical devices require corporate commercial services such as corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, protection of investors, and litigation services for product liability and other commercial disputes.

They also require a great deal of assistance in other aspects of the law, namely intellectual property (IP) protection and regulatory services.
