The medical device industry operates within a heavily patented field where patent rights are often upheld and enforced for the full 20 years of patent duration. Development of medical devices is ongoing and new patents must be broad enough to cover future developments. Within the field of medical technology, our clients typically manufacture highly specialised products and equipment sold to hospitals and private practices throughout Europe, the USA and Asia. Medical technology embraces a whole range of highly specialised technical fields such as electron physics, mechanics and pharmaceuticals.
We have set up a team of patent attorneys from fields within mechanical engineering and software as well as life sciences and chemistry.
