Covington is regulatory counsel to both start-up companies and large corporations, spanning a range of medical devices including implants, surgical instruments, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, in vitro diagnostic products, combination drug/device products, and computerized health information systems. Our lawyers advise clients on the full range of regulatory requirements and strategies for medical device product development — clinical trials, marketing authorizations and approvals, humanitarian device exemption, dispute resolution proceedings, quality system regulations (QSRs), post-market reporting and compliance, product recalls, and advertising and promotion. We also have experience with the electronic product standards and requirements that are also applicable to non-medical products such as laser products and sunlamps. In conjunction with our London and Brussels offices, we can efficiently advise companies on device regulatory requirements on a global basis. Our practical experience allows us to provide strategic advice that is sensitive to the interplay between regulatory issues and other important legal areas such as patent, antitrust, reimbursement, fraud and abuse, and product liability.
