Life Sciences
Our biotechnology patent group is the largest in Canada. We work with universities, hospitals, research institutions and government laboratories, as well as small and medium sized enterprises and multinational companies, developing intellectual property protection and licensing their innovations. Our professionals also work with intellectual property practitioners around the world to obtain protection for Canadian inventions abroad, as well as for foreign inventions in Canada. Our formidable team of litigators works closely with the other members of our group on biotechnology patent litigation matters, including Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) Regulations proceedings and the representation of pharmaceutical patentees against generic drug companies.
All of our biotechnology professionals have graduate and undergraduate degrees in such areas as cell biology, physiology, molecular cell biology, microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, developmental genetics, molecular and cellular physiology or pharmacy. We have extensive experience and depth of knowledge in areas such as diagnostics, medical devices and plant breeders' rights.
