Chambers Global 2009 names three of Torys' practitioners among Canada's top intellectual property lawyers

March 11, 2009

Eileen McMahon, Andrew Shaughnessy and Andrew Bernstein are among Canada's top-ranked intellectual property practitioners in Chambers & Partners' Chambers Global: World’s Leading Lawyers for Business, The Client’s Guide 2009.

Torys’ strength in intellectual property is continually growing, especially in major pharmaceutical litigation. The IP group’s skills include the prosecution of patents and trademark applications, and it has a strong life sciences focus. As a large team of relatively young lawyers, the practice is also known for its vitality and dynamic approach.

  • Eileen McMahon co-heads the group and is praised for her "outstanding knowledge of the biotech field," in addition to her understanding of food and drug regulatory law.
  • Andrew Shaughnessy concentrates on IP litigation, particularly pharmaceutical patent litigation, and is frequently seen in high-end cases. He also handles some arbitrations and mediations in the hi-tech sector.
  • Andrew Bernstein is active in both commercial and IP litigation, acting for life sciences, media and consumer companies on patents, copyrights and administrative law.
