June 22, 2018

Smart & Biggar announced today that six of the firm's partners were featured in the Lexpert® Special Edition – Guide to US/Canada Cross-Border Lawyers in Canada.

Also featured in the guide was an article titled ‘5 Reasons Why Canada is a Favourable Jurisdiction for Patent Litigation’ by managing partner, Steve Garland, and Montreal partner, Jean-Sebastian Dupont. In the article, they outline notable differences in the procedure and substantive law applied in Canada and the U.S. that have resulted in Canada becoming an increasingly attractive option for high-stakes patent litigation.
