Knobbe/Martens: Intellectual Property Law

Medical Device Litigation

At Knobbe Martens, our litigators offer a proven ability to persuade judges and juries alike regarding the value, efficacy and originality of each client’s medical device technology. Our lawyers understand far more than just the law, including a myriad of technologies, the language of engineers, KOLs, a variety of business models, the product development lifecycle, business finance and ROI.

We have decades of experience representing medical device companies in IP and technology litigation, from start-up to Fortune 500 companies and everything in between. Our clients know how to clear the clinical and regulatory hurdles to bring their medical device technology to market, and we know how to succeed in the courtroom. Notably, we have over $1 billion in judgments and settlements collected for our medical device clients with an equal amount of defense victories since 2000.

We deliver the bandwidth to handle bet-the-company litigation with more than 50 litigators focusing on technology disputes in the medical device industry. All of our medical device litigators have backgrounds as engineers, scientists or M.D.s, and can quickly devise a winning strategy within a cost-effective budget. Our experience includes all areas of the medical device industry, such as implantable devices, surgical planning, wearables and diagnostics. Whether proprietary technology has been stolen or a client is accused of doing so, we bring the requisite breadth and depth of skill and legal acumen needed to realize the right result in even the most critical or difficult disputes.

Our litigators have triumphed in courtrooms nationwide, as well as in arbitration, in coordination with foreign litigation, and in administrative proceedings before the ITC and PTAB, among other venues. Our unique blend of industry knowledge and legal savvy enables us to develop the litigation strategy that best fits our clients’ business needs. We remain dedicated to successfully and expeditiously executing the right strategy and approach to problem solving — whether in court, before the Patent Office, or at the negotiating table.
