Intellectual Property

  • Share this page

Every business has intellectual property (IP) assets worth protecting—patents, trade-marks, copyrights and industrial designs as well as ideas, products, logos, slogans and other designs. Fasken Martineau’s IP group can help develop a practical and cost-effective strategy for your IP rights without losing sight of your broader business vision.

With offices on three continents and an extensive network of associates providing local IP advice, we assist clients in Canada and around the world. Our IP practitioners—lawyers, patent agents and trade-mark agents—cover all aspects of IP protection and enforcement. Our IP group is composed of experienced IP counsel and litigators who work in multidisciplinary teams to advise our clients on optimizing protection through securing patents, trade-marks, copyrights and other forms of IP protection, branding, advertising, product development and regulatory advice.

Our Clients

We work with business clients ranging from solo inventors and entrepreneurs to small- and medium-sized enterprises and multinational companies. We also work with colleges, universities and government research institutes. On their behalf, we protect, exploit and enforce intellectual property rights and assets.
