In the protection of all forms of intellectual property (IP), the validity of any claim to originality, ownership or creation is paramount. Also common to all areas of IP is the importance of protection against unauthorized infringement of any rights. These issues require both an understanding of the law and of the technical aspects of the field of work. The IP Law Group at Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall has the specialized legal, technical and business expertise to advise on these issues, as well as the litigators to represent clients in the relevant courts and tribunals.
In conjunction with or independent of the registration process, we perform searches and provide opinions on the validity and registrability of trademarks and patents, designs and industrial designs. We also provide opinions on possible infringements of registered designs and industrial designs.
