IP Litigation

Litigation has been a defining aspect of our practice since we first opened, and we are known for being tireless in pursuit of a correct decision.

We act on behalf of plaintiffs to enforce their intellectual property against infringers, and in defence of those accused of infringing the intellectual property of others.

In the past, we have secured successful outcomes in the Federal Court, the Federal Court of Appeal, the British Columbia Supreme Court, and the British Columbia Court of Appeal. We have also acted against patent trolls in Canada and through US associates, with outstanding outcomes for our clients.

We have extensive experience asserting and contesting the validity of patents, trademarks and industrial designs. Our team also litigates copyright infringement actions, passing off and breach of confidence actions, and trademark oppositions in Canada and the US.

Our experience also includes interim and interlocutory injunctions practice, patent invalidity actions and counterclaims, patent re-examinations, trademark expungement proceedings (summary & Federal Court applications), domain name dispute proceedings, contempt of court proceedings, raids in execution of orders and judgments, Anton Piller relief, including acting as Independent Supervising Solicitor on Anton Piller Orders and letters rogatory.
