Benchmark Litigation names Smart & Biggar as Canada’s leading intellectual property litigation firm for sixth consecutive year

Smart & Biggar is again honoured for its outstanding IP litigation strength by being named “Intellectual Property Firm of the Year” by the Benchmark Litigation Canada 2020 awards, announced on May 28.

Each year we have been honoured to receive this recognition for the important victories we have obtained for our clients in high-stakes litigation in all areas of IP. Additionally, Ottawa managing partner Steven Garland received the high distinction of Canada’s ‘IP Litigation Lawyer of the Year'.

Earlier in the year, Benchmark Litigation release 2020 Benchmark Canada Guide recognizing thirteen Smart & Biggar lawyers as “Litigation Stars” for their exceptional work and expertise across IP litigation in trademarks, patents, pharmaceutical, industrial designs and copyright and media, through recommendations made by peers and clients.

Benchmark Litigation Canada is the definitive guide to Canada’s leading litigation law firms and lawyers. The results are derived from extensive peer reviews and interviews with Canadian litigators and clients to identify and recognize the top lawyers and firms in Canada for exceptional work across all areas of litigation.
