Medical devices

Our specialist medical device team work with diverse global companies within the industry to sustain growth, exploit current and future innovations, and secure their business's success. Our clients are multinational corporations and start-ups within the medical devices industry from companies within medical devices or in vitro diagnostic medical devices.

With sector-specific expertise grounded in scientific intelligence and technological know-how, clients value our knowledge of the regulatory frameworks shaping clients' strategic options, the technology being deployed, and our ability to execute complex legal solutions across multi-jurisdictions.
We ensure that our clients operate within the boundaries of medical regulations, data privacy, competition/anti-trust, procurement, pricing and reimbursement, advertising and promotion, and anti-bribery compliance/fraud and abuse laws.

We are pivotal in leveraging growth through strategic alliances, fundraisings, IP and compliant data privacy and security activities, and are relied on to resolve both offensive and defensive cross-jurisdiction patent litigation.

With in-depth sector expertise, we also actively engage with the wider medical devices industry through our connections with esteemed industry bodies and as leading voices in industry publications and wider expert webinar/seminar series.
