Medical Devices

A medical device is an instrument, machine or implant intended for use in the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of disease. A medical device can be something as simple as a thermometer, or as complex as a sophisticated joint implant. For many Canadians today, medical technologies, such as heart pacemakers and implants, are not only necessary to maintain good health, they are necessary for survival. These critical devices are, at times, faulty or defective — seriously harming, rather than helping, the individual. When this occurs, those who manufacture these medical products should be held responsible. 

We provide strategic advice concerning the particular needs of medical device companies such as licensing, patent and trademark protection, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and technology litigation. We can advise on all types of regulatory matters, such as labeling and advertising, record keeping and reporting requirements, device tracking, good manufacturing practices, and recalls and other corrective actions. We can assist in negotiating consent decrees and voluntary agreements, defended seizure actions, and represent clients in connection with criminal investigations.

Our strategies are tailored to the individual needs of each client, with an emphasis on efficiency and cost-effective use of resources. We believe strongly that effective use of technology enables us to serve our clients better and to conserve their financial resources. Technology is not an end in itself, but rather a tool that, when properly used, can bring significant efficiency to the delivery of legal services. Our philosophy is to apply our significant technology resources to our clients' needs in a cost-effective way that contributes value to our clients' pursuit of their objectives.

What distinguishes us from many other law firms is our businesslike approach to solving our clients' problems.  We recognize that the most aggressive (and expensive) strategy may not always be the best solution to a client's problem. We also recognize that most clients would prefer to spend less money to alleviate their problems than spend more. The Firm’s unique understanding of such issues allows  to communicate with business and technical personnel on a more meaningful level, and allows the Firm to avoid solutions that although theoretically sound, are impractical and unworkable. Trademark representation ranges from advising both domestic and foreign companies prior to development and use of a trademark, to registration with the United States Patent and Trademark office and Canadian Intellectual Property Office, protection of trademarks abroad, and trademark litigation.
