Medical Devices

Rapid development of new technologies in the medical devices sector has brought exciting and innovative products to market to the benefit of patients around the world, but the shifting regulatory landscape has meant that the sector is facing increased challenges.

Whether a business is just starting out or is a large multinational, it will need to evaluate risks and opportunities arising from intellectual property rights, regulatory and compliance issues, data protection and product liability. The increasing use of mobile or networked devices brings new challenges in terms of security of devices. There are also commercial drivers which will influence pricing and advertising campaigns, R&D and collaboration agreements, corporate restructuring and financing, asset purchases or potential M&As.

All of this requires lawyers with deep sector knowledge who can offer strategic solutions and insight. With offices in Europe, Asia (including China), Australasia and the Middle East, we can help.
