Devices & Diagnostics lawyers

In an increasingly competitive healthcare market, medical device and diagnostics companies need to ensure return on investment when developing innovative and reliable medical technologies and services. Devices and diagnostics are subject to complex regulatory and compliance frameworks and are often subject to competitive tendering.  You will need lawyers who can reliably advise on pragmatic, compliant solutions.

Through our team of sector specialists, we are well placed to advise throughout the product lifecycle from R&D, registration and commercialisation through to post-market support, transactional deals and litigation challenges.

We regularly advise device and diagnostics companies on their day-to-day business activities, including product development, registration, promotion and marketing (both B2B and B2C) and post-market responsibilities and liabilities. We also assist with licensing and commercial contracts, intellectual property enforcement,competition, anti-corruption and code compliance issues. 

Clients come to us for advice on both UK and international corporate deals, and we regularly represent manufacturers in complex litigation, including defence of product liability claims, and in pricing and procurement challenges. 

Medical technology companies expanding into e-health provision can rely on our strong technology, regulatory and data protection practices to tackle the full spectrum of legal challenges. Our teams regularly advise on the regulations applicable to digital health technologies, the associated data protection risks, as well as the commercialisation of e-health technologies and the regulatory frameworks for healthcare services. 

Via our significant involvement with industry bodies, such as the ABHI, BIVDA and MedTech Europe, we have helped shape the industry codes on business ethics, and we have significant experience of advising the industry on anti-corruption and code compliance issues.
