Intellectual Property Law

  • Patents
    I have a technical background in computer engineering and particular experience in all aspects of patent law, including the use of patents to secure and protect your business' valuable inventions.  In today's fast changing technology marketplace, a patent portfolio is a valuable tool that can help your business stay ahead of your competition.
  • Trademarks
    Your brand is your most valuable asset.  As a registered trademark agent in Canada (CIPO) and the United States (USPTO), I can help your business register trademark registrations to safeguard your business' goodwill and reputation throughout Canada and the US.
  • Domain Name Disputes
    Whether your domain name ends in .ca, .com, .org, or .net, we can help you assert and defend your legal rights if your domain name or brand identity is threatened online.
  • Licensing
    Just like any other property right, patents, trademarks, copyrights, and industrial designs can be brought and sold.  With particular experience in the negotiation of technology licenses, we can help you get the most out of your intellectual property portfolio.
  • Technology Law
    Whether you're a startup or an established business, we can help you handle all of your drafting needs, including ecommerce agreements, terms of use agreements and privacy policies, so you can concentrate on growing your business.
  • Copyrights
    As an author, a photographer, a musician, or an artist, your creative work is a copyrighted work.  We can work with you to protect it from being copied, replayed, or from being modified without your consent.
  • Intellectual Property Litigation
    If someone is infringing on your intellectual property rights, we can help you assert and defend your legal rights in court.  With experience in both the Ontario Superior Court and the Federal Courts of Canada, I can help you navigate complex patent, trademark, and copyright litigation.
