A brand starts with a single mark and can become one of the most valuable assets of your business. Trusting us with your brand is a responsibility we take very seriously. By combining trademark advice with practical business advice, we support your brand management as an essential part of your IP strategy.

With experience handling trademark registration and disputes before both the Canadian and US trademark offices, we have a team of seven registered trademark agents who provide a full range of services:

  • Canadian and US trade-mark screening and selection
  • Practical advice on brand protection
  • Trademark registration including oppositions (unlike many firms, we handle your Canada and US trademarks ourselves)
  • Trademark-watch services
  • Trademark oppositions, infringement prosecution and defence, seizure orders and injunctions
  • Oversee registration of trademarks all over the world through our closely-maintained network, and
  • Advising on strategies for brand protection and competitive intelligence

No matter the size of your business or the industry sector, contact Neil Kathol at or 403-260-8564 or Laura McFarlane at or 403-260-8577 to discuss your brand management and trademark needs and get an initial assessment of your IP strategy.
