Patent, Trademark and Copyright Litigation

Whether asserting intellectual property (IP) or defending against IP claims, we have unparalleled experience litigating complex and high-stakes IP litigation.

Our lawyers are always at the forefront of industry-altering patent issues arising before the Supreme Court of Canada and the Federal Court of Appeal, shaping the law through original thinking and thoughtful legal solutions imported from other jurisdictions.

When it comes to patent litigation regarding pharmaceuticals, there is no firm with more experience navigating the Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) Regulations (the “PM(NOC) Regulations”) than Goodmans.  Since their inception in 1993, Goodmans has litigated dozens of patent proceedings pursuant to the PM(NOC) Regulations each year before the Federal Court.  

Our patent litigation experience extends beyond pharmaceuticals to numerous other industries, including high technology, telecommunications, oil and gas and manufacturing.  This has only been possible because our patent litigation bench is deep, with industry-recognized leaders and leaders of the future working alongside several in-house PhD-level scientists.  Goodmans is the “best patent litigation firm in Canada” (Chambers Canada) and “simply put, there is Goodmans and then there is the rest” (IAM Patent 1000).
