Practice Profile

Intellectual Property

Our intellectual property lawyers come from a variety of practice areas within the firm who together serve a broad spectrum of clients in the information, communications and entertainment industries.

We advise clients on several areas within intellectual property law, including trademarks, sound marks, patents, copyright and entertainment.


Our leading edge, in-house computerized trademark search facilities permit us to identify, without delay, whether a proposed trademark already exists in both Canada and the United States.

We can conduct manual searches in Canada (three to four days or expedited to 48 hours), trademark availability searches in the US, preparation and filing of trademark applications in the US, searches and file applications in virtually any country outside of North America through agents, licensing of trademarks and other intellectual property, and action on behalf of franchisors and franchisees.
