ORTHOTEC seeks distributorship in the USA for its spinal product line: SCS, Claris, SCS-Claris, Zenith & Oria. Los Angeles Superior Court confirms ORTHOTECÂs sole exclusive ownership of all rights for ORTHOTEC spinal products in the USA.
ORTHOTEC protects its intellectual property and files suit in Federal Court against REO Spineline, Eurosurgical, Medistrat and several individuals for and among other: patent infringement, trademark and copyright infringements and breach of written contract (Docket: CV03-8346). Business litigation specialist Peter Ross is representing ORTHOTEC in this lawsuit.
Recently, Mr. Peter Ross successfully represented spinal industry company ORTHOTEC in a lawsuit against French manufacturer Eurosurgical, S.A. Following trial, the court found OrthoTec to be the sole, legitimate holder of ALL intellectual property rights in North America to spinal implants and surgical tools marketed under the trade names SCS, Claris, Zenith and Oria. The jury awarded OrthoTec $9,000,000 in damages against Eurosurgical.
Patrick Bertranou commented, ÂWe are extremely pleased with the outcome of the litigation, and we intend to vigorously pursue any other companies found to have been selling unauthorized copies of our products.Â
Since 1998, ORTHOTEC has established itself as one of the most recognized names in spinal system technology. ORTHOTEC's products include among others the CLARIS spinal system, CLARIS lumbar plate, SCS-CLARIS, SCS Spinal System, SCS Spinal Clip System, ZENITH cervical system and the Oria line.
Mr. Bertranou added, ÂWe are currently looking to expand our distribution in all markets in the United States and throughout North America through independent sales representatives and corporate associations. All inquiries should be directed to our corporate offices in Beverly Hills, either by telephone at (310) 273-1500 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.Â
