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 atherectomy devices; surgical sutures; cranial drills; cardiac pacemakers; intrauterine devices; intraocular lenses; spinal fixation devices and related biological products.

Our experiences include wide range of cardiac, spinal, orthopedic, and implants, guide wires, bone screws and other surgical implants; catheters; intraocular lenses; IUDs; urogynecologic devices; stents; aorta connectors; surgical mesh; shunts; surgical cages; demineralized bone matrix (DBM); 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 three major areas: (1) risk assessment and preventative counseling, along with associated regulatory, compliance and governmental investigations; (2) litigation; and (3) intellectual property matters.
