IP litigation can threaten both your brand and your bottom line. This specialized area of law requires experienced counsel who understand the current and future value of your assets and who will skillfully assert your rights.
We assist clients by providing opinions on validity, infringement and freedom to operate in light of existing IP rights. We always seek to structure our advice to avoid future disputes with strategies taking account of applicable law and rules arising from international trade agreements.
Growing international life sciences, engineering, electronic media and other industries require IP rights to be clarified and enforced across borders. We’ve appealed Copyright Board decisions to the federal courts, pursued extraordinary remedies including seizures before judgment and injunctions, and represented clients in international high-stakes patent litigation.
We work with clients in a variety of industries, including those where emerging technology and science benefits from sharp IP portfolio management. We also represent colleges, universities, government research institutes and professional associations such as the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys (FICPI).
Fasken’s IP litigation team has won recognition from respected publications such as Chambers Canada, Who’s Who Legal, Managing IP and Best Lawyers. We offer training to clients and industry groups, publish analysis in media articles and speak at events where IP issues are discussed.
