Litigation

The protection of intellectual property (IP) inevitably involves disputes over rights to that property. Bereskin & Parr LLP, a leader in IP law in Canada, has extensive experience in litigation and the management and effective resolution of such disputes. Our firm’s Litigation group advises and acts in all types of intellectual property cases, from simple disputes that may only require pragmatic negotiation, to major cases. We act for parties both large and small, from individual inventors and start-ups to international companies.

Our litigators have a wide variety of technical backgrounds in engineering, biotechnology, and computer-related fields, and are able to efficiently present complex technical cases. Several members have taken extensive training in mediation and arbitration and have extensive experience before the Supreme Court of Canada and federal and provincial courts and tribunals. Our professionals have also handled domain name disputes in the courts or using the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ (ICANN) dispute resolution policy. We tailor a litigation team for each case bringing together lawyers with both educational backgrounds and experience to suit the case.

Our litigation group is committed to selecting and implementing the best approach possible, and does so by being practical, efficient, and cost-effective. It is our policy to explore all available dispute resolution options in every case in order to provide practical business solutions and encourage settlement whenever possible. We emphasize file management and organization from the outset of the case with regular reviews of status and strategy with our client, and regular reporting.
