Gilbert's LLP

Gilbert's LLP is built to fit the legal needs of innovation-driven companies in a variety of industries. Our clients have needs that set them apart from most other businesses, and often find that the legal landscape lags behind the realities of new products and new ideas.

This requires an insightful, talented legal team with keen problem-solving skills — a team that understands the evolving needs of innovative industries, and can assist with intellectual property, litigation, commercial and other needs.

Our lawyers and patent agents have the creativity, insight and experience to be that team. Many of us also have backgrounds in the various industries that make up our client base, including biochemical research, fashion design and software development.

In 2014, IAM Magazine included Gilbert's as a top patent law firm in the magazine's Patent 1000, and recognized founder and managing partner Tim Gilbert, and partner Matt Powell as top professionals. In 2013, Gilbert's was also awarded Canada's Regulatory Firm of the Year by LMG Life Sciences.

Believing In The Product

As part of our commitment to creativity and ingenuity, our firm is deeply involved in pro bono work, education and charitable initiatives.

We provide legal services to low-income entrepreneurs through FINCA Canada and volunteer with Law Help Ontario, the Child Advocacy Project and other legal clinics. We also participate in instructional events such as the University of Toronto's Trial Advocacy program, and contribute to the Gilbert's LLP Prize in Design Thinking at Sheridan. Many of our lawyers also participate in charities such as the Saffron Foundation for global health initiatives, or sit on boards of charitable institutions such as the Design Exchange and the Toronto Zoo.

Our clients include a number of many of the largest innovation-driven companies in the world, but part of our commitment to the field includes a commitment to startups. If you have a business issue, or questions about how we can help you, call us. We'll let you know what we can do.
