Intellectual Property

We provide a large and diverse client base with comprehensive legal services essential to obtaining, maintaining, protecting and transferring intellectual property rights for products, processes and services. Our group’s experience and capability span the full scope of intellectual property issues, including trademarks, copyrights, trade dress, trade secrets, licensing, technology transfer, and non-disclosure and non-compete agreements. Our mission is to help ensure that the value of client intellectual property rights is established, maintained and enforced at the highest level possible.

We also handle non-disclosure and non-compete agreements as well as intellectual property disputes.

Siskinds experience in the preparation and prosecution of trademark and copyright applications is shown by the volume of our activity in these areas. In the trademark field alone, dozens of applications are filed annually with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office, and a substantial number of foreign trademark applications are prepared and submitted each year as well. The products, materials, designs, processes and technologies covered by these applications are widely varied.
