Medical Technology is an interdisciplinary field encompassing a wide range of sub-fields, including medical devices, engineering, imaging technologies, surgical equipment and methods, diagnostic aids, and drug delivery devices.
Because medical technology involves knowledge and processes from fields outside of medicine, there is often considerable overlap with other industry sectors, particularly biotechnology, chemistry, and pharmaceuticals.
At MMV IP, we understand that our clients are required to invest significant capital and to engage in extensive research to develop, make, and sell products and methods in the medical technologies. Once divulged, such products and methods may be easy to copy. Therefore, a strong patent portfolio is a critical necessity for our clients.
Our team of attorneys and agents is well-positioned to service your medical technology patent needs. One member of our team holds a medical degree (M.D.), and seven members of our team hold terminal degrees (Ph.D.) in fields related to medical technology. We work closely with clients to develop patent filing strategies, and leverage our deep scientific expertise across a wide range of medical technologies to draft strong patent applications and prosecute enforceable, commercially valuable patents. Understanding our clients’ technology and business goals are our top priorities at every step of the process.
