Rothwell Figg delivers wide-ranging legal counsel involving IP and technology for the medical devices industry. Our clients include not only medical device manufacturers themselves, but also investors, inventors (often medical doctors) and venture capitalists for whom we provide IP, due diligence, transactional, and litigation services that are supported by our deep bench of lawyers with scientific training.
Many of our attorneys have technical backgrounds in and an understanding of the chemistry, biology, engineering, and physics relevant to the devices at issue, in addition to proven litigation and courtroom experience. Our decades of representing major brand and generic pharmaceutical companies also give us first-hand insight into the business and legal issues that permeate the medical devices industry.
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 litigate patent cases involving a broad range of medical devices at trial, at the PTAB, and on appeal. We are skilled in advocating client positions in Patent and Trademark Office Proceedings, as well as a wide range of business litigation arising out of licensing or transactional disputes. In addition, we provide advice involving Food & Drug Administration (FDA) matters with respect to issues involving product labeling, marketing and promotion, FDA approval, and regulatory exclusivities.
