OVERVIEW & EXPERTISE

 

Our national and international clients regularly call upon us to assert and defend claims across a wide range of subject areas, including patent, trade secret, trade-mark, copyright and industrial design claims. We also represent clients in access-to-information litigation and cases related to other areas of intellectual property (IP), including personality rights, misleading advertising, depreciation of goodwill, counterfeiting, unfair competition, Internet domain name disputes and cybersquatting, in both courts and arbitrations.

Clients retain Blakes to litigate their IP claims because of our technical know-how, industry experience and expertise in resolving complex, high-stakes IP disputes. Our litigators have successfully represented client interests at all levels of courts, including the provincial superior courts, the Federal Court of Canada, the Supreme Court of Canada and the various appellate courts. We also frequently handle interferences, oppositions, cancellation and other proceedings before federal IP administrative boards such as the Trade-marks Opposition Board, the Patent Appeal Board, the Copyright Board and the Patented Medicines Prices Review Board. In the international arena, we work collaboratively with IP lawyers throughout the world to protect our clients’ IP wherever they do business.

Before litigating any case, we strategize with our clients to gain a clear understanding of their business goals in order to determine the best course of action to resolve their dispute.
