Rothwell Figg advises on IP ownership, patent portfolio development, strategy, due diligence assessment, and litigation for the dental devices industry. Our clients include dental device manufacturers, investors, and inventors (often dentists) and venture capitalists for whom our deep bench of lawyers with scientific training provide the full gamut of IP and technology-related services.
In addition to proven litigation and courtroom experience, many of our attorneys have technical backgrounds in and an understanding of the chemistry, biology, engineering, and physics relevant to the devices at issue. Our many years of advising major brand and generic health industry-related companies give us insight into the business and legal issues that permeate dentistry and the dental device market today. Notably, we have litigated patent cases involving a broad range of dental devices, including more than a dozen cases for Dentsply Sirona, one of the world’s largest dental products companies.
Our experience also includes IP strategy and portfolio development, transactional, regulatory, and trademark and copyright services. We advise on patent landscape/market clearance evaluations, patent prosecution, licensing, due diligence, and other IP agreements, trade secrets, third party patent evaluations, and IP audits.
We represent dental industry clients in patent infringement litigation—at trial, at the PTAB, and on appeal. We are skilled in advocating client positions in Patent and Trademark Office proceedings, as well as involving the wide range of business litigation claims that arise out of licensing or transactional disputes.
