Our firm is experienced in trademark advocacy before Federal Court of Canada, the Ontario courts and the Trade-marks Opposition Board. Our lawyers have assisted clients with various trademark disputes and administrative proceedings, such as:
- Initiating and defending against trademark opposition and summary cancellation proceedings before the Canadian Trade-marks Office.
- Appeals of trademark opposition and summary cancellation decisions, issued by the Canadian Trade-marks Office, to the Federal Court of Canada.
- Trade-mark infringement and passing off actions in Canada's Federal Court, including coordinating the Canadian portion of multi-country litigation with clients and foreign counsel to ensure that the Canadian proceedings did not negatively impact the other foreign proceedings.
While our lawyers have the skills to represent you in court in copyright and trademark disputes, they are also experienced negotiators able to pursue and conclude settlement where practical and in our client's best interests – a key feature of intelligent IP Law.
