Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh is proud to have been recognized with two prestigious awards by the UK publication Managing Intellectual Property (MIP). The firm was chosen as the 2014 Canadian Specialty IP Firm of the Year and as the Canadian Trademark Contentious Firm of the Year.

The awards were presented at MIP's 2014 North America Awards ceremony, held on March 25th, 2014 in Washington, D.C. The ceremony recognizes excellence in the global IP industry and was attended by IP practitioners from across Canada and the United States.
