Rankings & Recognition
Smart & Biggar leads the Benchmark Canada listing again for IP Litigation
June 25, 2018

Smart & Biggar is pleased to announce that the firm was featured prominently once again for Intellectual Property litigation in the 2018 Benchmark Canada Guide.

The guide featured a record 9 Smart & Biggar lawyers – more than any other firm – recommended by peers and clients for their expertise in IP Litigation.

Toronto partner Gunars Gaikis also received the distinction of being named one of the ‘Top 50 Trial Lawyers in Canada’, acknowledged by peers as "a pillar of the IP community, a true patent guru.”

A client interviewed by Benchmark is quoted as saying, "What many IP 'litigators' often forget is that, no matter how well you know this stuff, you have to translate it in a way that actually wins cases. You never have to worry about that with Smart & Biggar – their litigators never forget that trial skills are just as important a piece in the IP puzzle as the scientific minutiae."

Earlier this year Benchmark also named Smart & Biggar as “Canadian IP Litigation Firm of the Year” for the fourth consecutive year at the The Benchmark Canada Awards.

Congratulations to all of our partners on this notable recognition:

Earlier this year Benchmark Canada named Smart & Biggar as “Canadian IP Litigation Firm of the Year” for the fourth consecutive year at the The Benchmark Canada Awards.

Benchmark Canada is dedicated to covering litigation practitioners and firms across Canada. The results presented stem from the culmination of extensive peer reviews and interviews with Canadian litigators that take place over a four month research period. Over the course of the interviews, recent casework that has been handled by the firms is examined and sources are asked to offer their professional opinions on litigators practicing within their province or practice area(s) across the country.
