Practice Areas


The members of the litigation department represent clients before all levels of the Federal Court of Canada, the Quebec provincial courts, and the Supreme Court of Canada as well as before many specialized administrative tribunals. In addition to the enforcement of the more traditional rights resulting from patents, trademarks and copyrights, our litigation lawyers also assist our clients with civil and commercial proceedings dealing with issues related to technologies, confidentiality, trade secrets and unfair competition. Having contributed significantly to the development of Canadian case-law with respect to intellectual property, our litigators are highly respected in Canada and abroad and have gained a substantial reputation among their clients and peers.

Several members of our firm are recognized as being experts in the field of alternative dispute resolution proceedings, whether representing clients in arbitration or mediation proceedings or acting as presiding arbitrators or mediators.
