The Medical Device specialist practice group assists clients with the protection and enforcement of IP in this constantly evolving sector.
The term ‘medical device’ covers devices developed for use in a diverse range of diagnostic and therapeutic disciplines. This is reflected in the technical backgrounds of our group members.
Our expertise include securing patent protection for medical devices and, where appropriate, protecting the appearance of such devices by design registration and registering trade marks for device product names.
The first degrees of the group members encompass areas such as chemistry, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, medical and microbiology and genetics. Two members of the group have related doctorates. The team also includes a former Patent Examiner and an in-house patent attorney for a multi-national producer of medical equipment.
Collectively the group has experience in protecting inventions in such fields as foetal monitoring, dental implants, ultrasonic and microwave imaging apparatus, endoscopy devices, soft tissue surgical tools, stent manufacture, pharmaceutical packaging and container closures, special implants and limb prostheses. Our group Trade Mark specialist has experience in advising clients in such fields as electro-surgical devices, dental technology and dermatology.
Our clients range from individuals and SME’s to multinational corporations and include University research departments and spin out companies.
