Rankings & Recognition
Smart & Biggar tops the Best Lawyers list for IP with 30 lawyers selected for 2019
August 21, 2018

Smart & Biggar is pleased to announce that 30 lawyers have been included in the 2019 Edition of The Best Lawyers in Canada for Intellectual Property, more than any other firm.

Partner, François Guay was also recognized as “Lawyer of the Year” in Intellectual Property Law for the Montreal region. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is selected as "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant for François. Receiving this designation speaks to the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in their same community and practice area.

The Best Lawyers in Canada list is divided by geographic region and practice areas, and we are proud to have lawyers featured from across all five of our offices in Canada, and  recognized under six categories in addition to Intellectual Property Law: Advertising and Marketing Law, Biotechnology Law, Information Technology Law, Privacy and Data Security Law, Technology Law.

Congratulations to all of our lawyers recognized among the most influential lawyers in their field(s) of expertise by Best Lawyers.
