A medical device manufacturer entered into a development and supply agreement to create, prototype and produce at scale a new cardiac telemetry monitoring device for a client, which included certain intellectual property rights. A dispute arose, however, and escalated through initial discussions, litigation and post-litigation phases.
Waller was called upon to assist the medical device manufacturer throughout all phases of the dispute, handling settlement discussions over a period of months, litigation and post-litigation settlement efforts. Ultimately, Waller was able to fully resolve the dispute in a favorable manner for the client, including negotiating a new supply agreement between parties that had previously been locked in litigation. Overall, Waller protected both the financial health of the manufacturer as well as critical intellectual property rights.
