Dino Clarizio is a partner at Goodmans.  Dino is a registered patent agent in both Canada and the U.S. and a registered trade-mark agent in Canada. Dino’s practice focuses on intellectual property litigation and patent prosecution.

Dino's work includes all types of intellectual property litigation and, in particular, patent litigation in the chemical and pharmaceutical area.  He has appeared in the trial and appeal levels of the Federal Court, and in the Supreme Court of Canada in cases ranging from pharmaceuticals to construction toys to washing machine agitators.  Dino also counsels clients on pre-litigation issues, such as providing freedom-to-operate, infringement and validity opinions.

Dino's cases have involved issues including anticipation, obviousness, utility, the duty of good faith, infringement, the doctrine of functionality in trade-mark law, survey evidence, and copyright.

Dino also has a patent prosecution practice spanning all kinds of technologies, with an emphasis on patenting in the chemical and biotech industries.  Dino's patent work has included responsibility for all E.I. du Pont patent filings in Canada, which include inventions relating to polymers, genetically modified plants and other chemically-based innovations. Other technologies include medical devices, pharmaceuticals, fuel cell components, interactive gaming methods and energy sources.

Dino is co-author of two of the main patent textbooks in Canada. He is also a frequent author and speaker in Intellectual Property law, and is involved with the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada. 

Prior to joining Goodmans in 2008, Dino was a partner at another major Canadian law firm.
