Medical Devices

Pepper's focus on medical devices includes national counsel representations and covers engagements in federal and state courts across the country. The scope of our engagements have covered medical device products including a wide range of cardiac, spinal, orthopedic, and other implants; atherectomy devices; guide wires; catheters; intraocular lenses; IUDs; urogynecologic devices; stents; aorta connectors; surgical mesh; shunts; surgical cages; demineralized bone matrix (DBM); human tissue products; and many other devices.

Pepper works everywhere – from medical device companies’ R&D labs, their offices for regulatory affairs, and in the courtroom in front of a judge and jury – to help our clients meet complex regulatory requirements, manage the risks associated with the marketing and distribution of devices, and defend against individual, class action and “mass tort” claims. Much of our work for medical device companies falls into four major areas: (1) risk assessment and preventative counseling, along with associated regulatory, compliance and governmental investigations; (2) litigation; (3) intellectual property matters; and (4) corporate and finance transactions.
