The production of medical equipment has entered a new era. Owing to the intensive changes occurring in MedTech, specialists nowadays conduct very thorough diagnostic tests, and medical procedures are carried out with unprecedented precision, even if done remotely. Medicine now uses cutting-edge materials and technologies, including space technologies, bringing recovery to many patients who until recently could not have been helped, and improving the quality of life of others.
Considering the scale and growth dynamics of this sector, it is essential that MedTech companies are supported by specialists who understand the technical aspects of designing and manufacturing medical equipment, tools, and materials and who know how to provide them with suitable protection.
We closely observe Medtech and medical equipment industry trends. Because of this, we understand the challenges that need to be faced and know how to create effective intellectual and industrial property protection strategies in this sector. We cooperate both with large corporations and with start-ups, always providing a customized approach and creative solutions.
We support our clients in the following areas:
- building an effective protection strategy for inventions and utility models in Poland, the EU, and worldwide
- carrying out research on the state of the art, patentability, patent clearance, patient interviews, monitoring and auditing intellectual property, and conducting patent landscape analyses
- conducting application and registration proceedings before Polish, European, and international authorities in cases relating to inventions, utility models, trademarks, and industrial designs
- licensing and assigning exclusive rights
- handling disputes related to the infringement of intellectual and industrial property rights
- conducting feasibility analyses for technology transfer and commercialization
- providing legal assistance for technology transfers
- renewing exclusive rights and making amendments in the register
- handling regulatory matters related to cooperation with JWP Attorneys at Law
- training, workshops, and other forms of disseminating knowledge on intellectual property
We cooperate both with universities and direct suppliers of medical equipment, including tomography in its broad sense and non-invasive diagnostic methods. We also file applications, provide opinions, and research patentability and infringement clearance in the areas of orthopaedics, ophthalmology, and dentistry, e.g. in cases related to biometric dental implants. We also offer solutions related to the storage and application of medicinal products.
