Now Available On-Demand | Recorded on September 30


Fox Rothschild’s MedTech attorneys are part of an AmLaw 100 firm with 950 lawyers in 70 practice areas coast-to-coast. Entrepreneurial, resourceful, and innovative, Fox attorneys listen, then act on what they hear, delivering national firm resources with the focus and service of a boutique, and an unwavering commitment to client satisfaction.


The Medtech Conference is well-known for gathering the leading innovators, investors, and executives from around the nation to discuss the timeliest issues and opportunities. Covid19 forced us to postpone this year’s in-person event, but we didn’t want the helpful and impactful conversations our audience enjoys to stop; hence we’re launching the Medtech Talk Digital Discussion Series. Like the conference, this series will feature discussions (panels or fireside chats) hosted by moderator Geoff Pardo that explore relevant topics for medtech leaders.

This first episode will feature an exclusive panel interview with several members of the Inari Medical management team. The team will discuss their unique culture, strong mission, early success, sales strategy and many other topics. As one of medtech’s startup success stories, particularly with achieving an IPO during this pandemic, you will not want to miss this conversation!
