Marshall, Gerstein & Borun recognizes that even the simplest medical innovation may arise from a multi-disciplinary collaboration, and we encourage our professionals to create customized legal solutions for each client and project. Our professionals, with backgrounds in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemistry and biotechnology, routinely come together to address the complex technical and legal issues involved in establishing the broadest possible rights for our medical device clients.

We have handled intellectual property matters relating to such diverse medical fields and products as:

  • Anesthesiology and pain management;
  • Cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery;
  • Continence care products;
  • Drug delivery devices;
  • Dental equipment;
  • Medical diagnostics and imaging;
  • Medical records management (MIS); and
  • Orthopedic equipment and implants.

Medicine knows no borders, nor do we; our practice is an international one. Innovators around the world rely on us to represent them in a variety of forums. We advocate before the United States Patent and Trademark Office and before foreign patent and trademark offices through our network of foreign associates. We represent our clients in the U.S. federal courts and before the U.S. International Trade Commission, and we work with our trusted foreign associates in representing clients in foreign litigation, most recently in Germany and China.

Whether in the laboratory, the boardroom, the Patent Office or the courtroom, we work with you to generate and deploy creative, informed and efficient IP strategies with the goal of maximizing the value of your business and innovation.
