Joanie Lapalme specializes in intellectual property law. She represents the firm’s clients in patent, industrial design, trademark and copyright matters before the Federal Court, the Federal Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court of Canada.

She also advises the firm’s clients in these areas, as well as in regulatory matters (drugs and food), an aspect of her practice for which her master’s degree in molecular biology (summa cum laude) has been particularly useful to her. Joanie is also working on a master’s degree in intellectual property law at McGill University’s Faculty of Law.

Since 2010, Joanie has been a lecturer for the Université de Sherbrooke’s course on intellectual property law, offered through the faculty of law.
