From dressings and compositions to medical devices, wound management is a competitive global market which spans the chemical, mechanical, biological and electrical fields.
As technology evolves, smart devices and dressings that provide information and data to optimise healing are emerging, positioning wound management as a sophisticated, cross functional industry that’s changing the face of healthcare.
HGF’s large number of specialists in wound management work with multinational healthcare companies, SMEs and academic research institutions that are developing technology in the monitoring and control of healing processes, whilst driving longevity of single-use items.
With varying and ever-changing international regulatory controls, HGF works closely with wound management clients’ R&D departments to optimise and harmonise their global IP strategy. The specialist team has extensive in-house experience, providing a broad understanding of the industry and its unique IP challenges, along with diverse academic expertise and legal experience across a variety of different subject matter fields. HGF is therefore ideally positioned to engineer and deliver bespoke IP strategies tailored for each client’s commercial objectives in this continually evolving technology space.
From patent drafting, prosecution, opposition, freedom to operate (FTO) and enforcement advice, transactional legal and trade marks to litigation in this highly competitive sector, HGF has considerable experience of representing a range of healthcare clients in opposition at the EPO, and its pan-European presence is invaluable for handling and resolving matters in various jurisdictions.
