Established in 1977, Oyen Wiggs is Western Canada’s largest independent intellectual property law firm.
Our Vancouver law firm is deeply rooted in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, and our wide-reaching network of associates enables us to advance our clients’ interests around the world.
We practice intellectual property law exclusively and deal with the full range of legal matters in this field – including patents, trademarks, copyrights, industrial designs, trade secrets, computer and Internet law, technology transfer and licensing, and related litigation.
We help clients ranging from entrepreneurial start-ups to multinational enterprises in protecting their intellectual property assets. As a mid-size firm, we are small enough to cultivate personalized client-lawyer relationships, but also large enough to have the breadth to handle a wide range of IP matters to meet your requirements as your business grows and evolves.
Our litigation practice has our lawyers appearing regularly before the Federal Court, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, and the Trademarks Opposition Board. Our lawyers have also successfully appealed cases to the Federal Court of Appeal, the British Columbia Court of Appeal and the Patent Appeal Board.
Given our diversity of technical expertise outside of law, we have the professional expertise to assist clients in acquiring and enforcing IP rights in all technical fields. Lawyers in the firm have advanced technical training in fields including engineering, physics, software, electronics, chemistry, and biotechnology – you will find someone here who speaks your language.
Ideas are our passion. We’d welcome an opportunity to learn about yours, and to work with you on a legal strategy to maximize your intellectual property interests.
