Medical Technology

Procopio’s Medical Technology group focuses on the medical device community, and in particular the convergence between medicine and wireless technology. This convergence has allowed hospitals and healthcare providers to offer patients a broader range of medical solutions in a more timely and cost-effective manner, while enabling them to lead healthier, more self-sufficient lives.

We are uniquely positioned to provide value to companies in this sector due to our long history of counseling Medical Device and Healthcare companies and our extensive experience advising wireless technology, software and analytics businesses. Many of our Medical Technology attorneys are engineers themselves, so we get it. We can quickly and easily grasp the technical issues at hand, moving with ease through regulatory and reimbursement issues involved in Medical Device and Healthcare endeavors.

Our Medical Technology Law group is at the forefront of the healthcare industry, and we have built our solid reputation through the successful representation of medical device and diagnostic companies. We possess a unique understanding of the dynamic and competitive landscape that our clients face every day. We work as strategic business partners in all stages of development and help our clients address industry challenges such as shorter product lifecycles, regulatory obstacles and a contentious intellectual property environment.
