Smart & Biggar tops the Canadian rankings in Managing Intellectual Property’s 2016 IP Stars Handbook: Trademark & Copyright
February 3, 2016

Smart & Biggar has once again been named one of the top trademark practices in Canada in Managing Intellectual Property’s 2016 IP Stars Handbook: Trademark & Copyright.  For the third consecutive year, Smart & Biggar has again received the highest possible ranking as a "Tier One" firm in both Trademark Prosecution and Trademark Contentious in the Canadian national category.

IP Stars is Managing Intellectual Property’s specialist guide to the leading IP firms and practitioners worldwide. The guide reviews the world's leading IP firms for prosecution and contentious work and is the longest running analysis in the market. Rankings in the Handbooks are based on extensive research among IP practitioners carried out over a six month period. A team of researchers in London, New York and Hong Kong sought responses from thousands of practitioners by phone, surveys, email and in face-to-face meetings, making this the most comprehensive and authoritative survey of the IP legal market.

Firms cannot vote for their own inclusion or solicit votes from associates.  Moreover, the tables are not an exhaustive list of every firm in each jurisdiction; inclusion is based on merit and recommendation by peers and clients. Managing IP does not endorse or recommend any particular firm, and no firm has paid to be included in the rankings.
