Intellectual Property Advice For Healthcare Sector
Behind the NHS and the many private medical services operating in the UK, lies an extensive supply industry, which is key to the functioning of many of our hospitals and doctors’ surgeries.
Members of our team have invaluable experience of working within this field. We act for one of the world’s largest manufacturers of surgical and wound care products, and have extensive experience with many of the UK’s leading over-the-counter pharmaceutical brands. We have advised on patents for tissue implants, antibody therapies, surgical instrumentation, assay strips and medical imaging, amongst other medical devices and technology.
In addition, we continually advise upon global branding strategies and patents in the healthcare sector, and have regularly been called upon to advise on counterfeiting and parallel import issues, which can have serious consequences beyond intellectual property. We also have extensive experience of enforcement of healthcare intellectual property overseas, particularly in the Far East.
We also understand that extreme care must be taken in the healthcare industry in the development of specialised, regulatory-approved products; and whilst competition is ever present, there is an underlying duty to deliver quality goods and avoid confusion in the market place, and we help our clients to achieve these aims.
