The medical and healthcare sector is complex and constantly evolving. It overlaps with electronics, software and biological sciences. Intellectual property can be key, with patent portfolios a vital tool for supporting investment where products might take many years to come to market.
Our attorneys have considerable experience of building valuable patent portfolios in this challenging field, as well as advising on patent risks posed by existing players in the market. We also help our clients generate value from their patents, by supporting them through funding rounds and licensing negotiations.
We have recently advised on matters including the development of a remote healthcare monitoring system and a ground-breaking fertility management system.
