Knobbe Martens Intellectual Property Law - Medical Devices & Procedures

We are an undisputed leader in medical device IP Law, having filed more than 5,000 patent applications in the medical device arts alone, helped over 50 medical device companies get acquired or go public, and successfully litigated numerous medical device IP cases, several through trial and appeal. We’ve been active in the medical device industry almost from its inception—providing leading-edge counsel and representation for the entire spectrum of clients, including “garage” inventors, start-up companies, venture capitalists, medical device incubators, and established, publicly held-corporations. Our team of attorneys provides guidance in all stages of development through capital formation, transactional due diligence, patent landscape (market clearance) evaluations, strategic patent prosecution, licensing and other IP agreements, trade secrets, third party patent evaluations, IP audits and, when necessary, IP litigation. Our experience in the medical device industry encompasses a wide range of technical specialties, some examples of which include aesthetics, cardiac rhythm management, cardiovascular, dental, diabetes, ENT, gastrointestinal, monitoring/imaging, neurovascular, OB/GYN, ophthalmic, orthopedics/spine, prosthetics, peripheral vascular, pulmonology, and medical information technology applications. Some of our attorneys serve or have served on the Boards of Directors of medical device companies, giving us an unparalleled perspective into the industry’s unique business issues and challenges.  Additionally, several of our attorneys have extensive engineering and R&D experience at medical device companies. We also launched KnobbeMedical.com, a free cooperative portal that provides corporate, regulatory, legal, manufacturing, and other resources for entrepreneurs, executives, clinicians, researchers, investors, and corporate board members who are exploring a start-up, joint venture or spin-off in the medical device industry.
