Medical Technology

Our MedTech team has a long history of working with health care innovators to introduce cutting-edge products and services, paving the way to new efficiencies and marked improvements in patient outcomes. Through this exposure, we’ve developed a keen understanding of the demands placed on hospital leadership and the innovation needed to maintain competitive positioning in the business and consumer marketplaces. Drawing on our deep regulatory knowledge, we help traditional health systems and providers undertake new enterprise technology initiatives and execute disciplined implementation plans.

We also help medical technology players protect and commercialize their intellectual property assets, develop effective and legally sound go-to-market strategies and forge strategic alliances with the right providers. Notably, several of our attorneys have advanced technical degrees and prior experience working for pharmaceutical companies and major research institutions. We integrate skill and savvy across multiple legal disciplines to help life sciences companies and other industry disruptors overcome barriers to innovation while remaining responsive to regulators and consumers.

We aim to be true innovators in how we support our clients, driving meaningful difference through creatively conceived and well-executed solutions.

Areas of Focus

Data Application & Security

Our privacy and data security services help health care clients prepare for risks, protect sensitive data, respond to data breaches and defend against potential litigation. We work with clients across the health care ecosystem to create an environment of privacy-by-design and develop written information security programs (WISPs) that meet current requirements. When an event occurs, we can provide immediate advice on threat assessment, data preservation and the likelihood of material breach that may be subject to additional statutory or regulatory requirements. We can also counsel on stopping, reversing or otherwise mitigating financial loss and addressing possible reputational risks.

Life Sciences IP

We offer clients in the life sciences industry a comprehensive suite of services tailored to accommodate their distinct business, intellectual property and legal needs. Our team advises developers, investors and financial intermediaries across all stages and facets of company development. We handle quick turn-around due diligence projects, protect our clients’ IP assets while policing the activities of their competitors, and help innovative companies execute bold portfolio management strategies on a global scale.
