Bennett Jones represents entities ranging from emerging enterprises to global multi-national companies in all aspects of intellectual property strategy, risk analysis and prosecution. We understand that intellectual property protection for our clients is an important aspect of a larger business strategy. Adopting a holistic approach to protecting intellectual property results in legal advice that complements other aspects of a company's overall strategic vision, improves a company's balance sheet, attracts strategic partners, increases shareholder/investor value, and positions our clients for growth and success. We are often the first call the client makes when they are looking to expand and capitalize on opportunities for their business through their intellectual assets, and we strategize and guide them through any risk to ensure they can anticipate and bank their successes.
Bennett Jones' prosecution team assists clients in the strategic acquisition, protection and monetization of intellectual property rights across the globe. Our team of lawyers and agents have decades of experience drafting, prosecuting, defending and opposing intellectual property at Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO), the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO). In addition to our extensive team, we have a carefully vetted network of foreign intellectual property counsel with whom we partner, located in key jurisdictions worldwide.
