We are creative lawyers for innovative clients.

We've been helping creative businesses succeed for more than 20 years. We are not just lawyers, we are also entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, and artists.

We understand the needs and challenges of innovative and creative communities, and we are passionate about solving your problem and closing your file.

Our familiarity with your industry gives us a head start dealing with your legal and business concerns. We quickly understand the issues and motivations of our clients and opposing parties, and suggest practical solutions.

Our lawyers, agents, and staff have experience with a variety of industries driven by creativity, research and ingenuity, including:

Life Sciences

We can assist you in protecting and litigating IP rights in relation to drugs, medical devices, natural health products, foods and beverages, consumer products, agribusiness, and more. We can also help you to navigate complex regulatory issues and overcome obstacles to a successful product launch.

TECHNOLOGY

We can assist you with securing and asserting IP rights relating to a wide variety of mechanical and computer-related technologies. Our technology patent experience ranges from food processes, fire suppression systems, medical devices, and golfing accessories to nanotechnology, 3D scanning, gaming, telecommunications, and operating system software.

Music and Entertainment

We leverage years of experience and deep connections in the entertainment industry to deliver innovative and practical legal services to artists and entertainment-driven businesses. We help clients handle a wide array of agreements, intellectual property, and litigation matters related to music, film and TV, books, and more.

Energy, environment and natural resources

Our work includes patent protection and litigation for clients in the oil and gas industry, as well as environmental litigation. Our lawyers have experience at National Energy Board hearings and assisting clients in the alternative energy sector, including wind and solar power.

Corporate and Commercial

Our award-winning Slingshot program helps start-ups, growing businesses, and non-profits get the critical legal assistance they need as they scale. From incorporation to raising funds to selling your business, we provide practical and impactful advice for every stage and all the deals in between.

Media and Communications

Our lawyers have experience with small and large companies in the media and telecommunications industries. We help companies and individuals navigate disputes, defamation claims, agreements and litigation matters with respect to telecommunications, internet, broadcasting, and publications.

INDIGENOUS AND ABORIGINAL LAW

Our Aboriginal law group has extensive experience providing creative yet practical representation for clients on a wide range of legal matters, including land claims, treaty and aboriginal rights under section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982, and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
