Product Licensing Expert in Implantable Medical Devices
A product licensing expert was needed for a breach of contract case involving implantable medical devices. The plaintiff was an accomplished surgeon who was the primary inventor on a number of patents for biocompatible prosthesis. The defendant was a company that engineers, manufactures and supplies biomedical devices. The parties negotiated a licensing agreement under which the defendant would develop products based on the plaintiff's intellectual property in exchange for licensing fees paid as royalty payments. Plaintiff claimed the defendant failed to pay the full amount owed and sued for breach of contract.
