Intellectual Property
Business-minded counsel driven by technical skill and industry savvy make us trusted partners to our clients in the management and protection of their intellectual property assets in Canada, the U.S. and internationally.


Our strength in all aspects of intellectual property law allows us to guide clients through the creation of intellectual property strategies that align with and advance their business goals. We have deep experience in every dimension of intellectual property rights: delivering effective solutions across transactions, agreements, litigation, and disputes. We are recognized for our technical skills and legal acumen in the creation, acquisition, management, and protection of our clients’ IP rights—as well as in responding to the rights and claims of others.

Our group of over 40 lawyers, patent and trademark agents, and technical consultants includes internationally recognized leaders with advanced scientific and engineering degrees in various disciplines. This fluency in scientific subject matter makes us skilled at transforming complex, innovative concepts into tailored and practical opinions and persuasive advocacy, ensuring clients retain the IP they develop. For clients with global interests, we ensure their domestic IP strategy does not adversely affect their goals in other jurisdictions.

Our strength of experience spans industries, including life sciences, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotechnology, food and agribusiness, retail and consumer products, energy, and technology, including high-growth startups in the sector.
