BEC have worked with representatives of the plaintiffs as well as the defendants. BEC provides expert consultation and helps educate attorneys and courts on healthcare technology-related matters. The depth of experience BEC delivers to its customers has been recognized throughout the world. This includes the understanding of the complex regulatory requirements, labeling compliance, design & manufacturing, intellectual property processes, device owner’s role and maintenance obligations, interoperability, networking and device’s risk management program.

BEC is able to investigate each of the product life stages starting with design considerations and manufacturing quality control, and continuing with post market complaints management and the fulfillment of the owner’s responsibilities. Our expert support service provides explanation of the causes in powerful and clear language to both judge and jury.

BEC experience is extremely useful in intellectual property litigations’ strategy, where product evolution and the strength of a competitor’s patent can determine the validity of the claims. A “novelty search” one that helps determine the state of patent claims’ novelty has been successfully performed by BEC and produced evidence that muted the alleged infringement that was claimed. The knowledge state of prior art by “person skilled in the art” is additional critical information that BEC and its associates can deliver for cases involved with medical products.
