IP asset management means getting the most from your portfolio. It’s more than obtaining patents or industrial designs, registering or using trademarks or adequately leveraging your copyrights. Often, it means quantifying the value of your assets and enforcing your rights to maximize the commercial value of your business.
IP is worldwide, but local rules vary. With increased cross-border business and the prevalence of counterfeiting, it is important to have experienced counsel who will navigate regulations and efficiently pursue remedies wherever you do business.
As recognized IP leaders, Fasken is well positioned to respond to the cross-border opportunities and challenges created by existing and new technologies and their corresponding legal and regulatory frameworks. We work with clients ranging from start-ups to multinational corporations as well as with colleges, universities and government research institutes.
Our IP team includes lawyers, patent and trademark agents as well as advisors with advanced degrees in engineering, pharmaceutical and biological sciences, and physics. We work in multidisciplinary teams to advise our clients on securing, enforcing and licensing patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade-secrets and other forms of IP protection. We also assist companies in their branding, advertising, product development, regulatory compliance, outsourcing and with their mergers and acquisitions.
Qualified in both common and civil law, our team speaks English, French and many other languages. We’re honored to have received positive recognition from respected organizations such as Chambers Canada, Legal 500, Best Lawyers, World Trademark Review, IAM Patent 1000 and Managing Intellectual Property.
