Patents
For many of our clients, their patent portfolio is their most important asset and is critical to their success. We are therefore proud to be recognized in numerous international surveys as Canada's leading patent firm -- a team of professionals with extensive technical depth and strategic expertise. Our recognized strength in patent law and our ability to provide superior service is the basis for our having prepared and filed more patent applications than any other firm in Canada. But our patent practice is not limited to acquiring patent rights. We recognize that obtaining strong patents without a developed strategy can result in both increased risks and missed opportunities.

  • patentability, infringement and validity opinions
  • clearance and right to use opinions
  • prior art searching
  • performing patent audits
  • Canadian patent application preparation and filing
  • filing and prosecution in the United States and throughout the world
  • patent licensing
  • due diligence in commercial transactions
  • patent litigation
