Firm Details

THE FIRM: Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh is Canada’s largest practice devoted exclusively to IP and technology law, with offices in five of Canada’s major technological and commercial centres. Our tradition of hiring professionals who are trained in engineering or the technical sciences is a hallmark of our practice. Virtually every member of our firm has an engineering or scientific educational background, and dozens of our practitioners also have postgraduate degrees in their respective areas of practice. More than two-thirds of our firm members, including most of our lawyers, are registered patent agents. The firm acts for clients in many sectors, including: biotechnology; chemistry and pharmaceuticals; electrical and electronic; media and broadcasting; food, beverage and tobacco; luxury goods and apparel; retail; industrial and mechanical; metals and mining; software; information technology and internet; consumer products; aerospace and defence; energy and utilities; financial services; transportation; and telecommunications. Our client list also includes hundreds of Fortune 500 companies as well as Canadian leaders in research and development.

INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE: We offer a full complement of patent and trademark agency services to associate firms and in-house counsel seeking to protect, exploit or litigate intellectual property rights in Canada and we are proud that our services are consistently lauded in leading international surveys.

We have been entrusted with the preparation, filing and prosecution of more patent and trademark applications than any other firm in Canada and clients look to us for commercially important and precedent setting IP litigation, including having appeared in the Supreme Court of Canada on more than 50 occasions.
