Last year, Benchmark Canada named François Guay and Steven B. Garland Intellectual Property Litigators of the Year in the category of trademarks. They were the only litigators in Canada to receive this prominent recognition.

The Canadian edition of Benchmark Litigation, Benchmark Canada has recognized 6 lawyers from Smart & Biggar for their expertise in the area of Intellectual Property litigation. The individual litigators listed throughout the Guide are recognized leaders in their respective provinces.

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.
