Keller and Heckman’s Food and Drug attorneys, in collaboration with our in-house scientists, counsel clients on global medical device laws and regulations, from premarket clearance processes, to advertising and promotion requirements, to continuing compliance requirements, to enforcement matters. We assist clients with compliance issues under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, such as how to classify medical devices (Class I, II, or III) and assessing the requirements for premarket notifications (510(k)s), applications for premarket approval (PMA), Humanitarian Device Exemptions (HDEs), De Novo Classifications requests, and Device Master Files (MAF), in addition to related requirements in countries around the world. 

Our attorneys provide guidance regarding good manufacturing practices (GMPs), the Quality System Regulation (QSR), Medical Device Reports (MDRs) (Part 803), and Reports of Corrections and Removals (Part 806). We advise clients on FDA inspection practices, recalls and market withdrawals, and how to respond to Warning Letters and other actual or threatened enforcement actions. Keller and Heckman’s Food and Drug attorneys counsel both finished device manufacturers and component suppliers on product liability issues and, when necessary, defend them in related court cases.
