Trademarks
For more than one hundred years, Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh has been at the forefront of Canadian trademark law. The tradition continues today as our experience and expertise provide clients with sophisticated and practical advice in all areas of trademark practice, from registering Canada's first sound mark, to precedent-setting anti-counterfeiting customs remedies, to reshaping the law of pharmaceutical trade-dress protection, to being successful counsel in many of Canada's most important trademark decisions, whether in the Supreme Court of Canada, Federal Court of Appeal, Federal Court, or in provincial superior courts. We provide efficient and expert trademark advice and service, and we are sought after by the owners of the world’s most valuable brands. Consistent with this, we are proud to have been entrusted with filing more trademark and patent applications than any other firm in Canada.
