Innovation in the medical technology (medtech) field has grown rapidly in recent years. Modern medical techniques and equipment frequently combine multiple technical disciplines including materials, electronics, robotics, mechanics and computer technologies to name a just a few.
Our teams of patent attorneys have substantial experience in the medical device field. The diversity of technical backgrounds within our patent teams allows us to map our attorneys’ skills onto our clients’ medical device technologies. Collaboration allows us to securely protect even the most complex medical technologies.
Designs and brands can also play an important part in the success of a product or product launch and our teams of design and trade mark attorneys are able to provide expertise in protecting those aspects of a client’s intellectual property. Our solicitors are well-placed to assist in any transactional or contentious matters relating to medtech.
Many of our attorneys have worked in-house, in industry or in research and so have a good understanding of some of the issues and difficulties our clients face.
