Canada’s Intellectual Property Firm

Smart & Biggar hailed ‘IP Boutique Law Firm of the Year’ at the Canadian Law Awards 2023

Smart & Biggar is proud to share that the firm has been recognized for the fourth consecutive year as the gold winner of ‘IP Boutique Law Firm of the Year’ award at the Canadian Law Awards 2023. The award was presented at an awards ceremony hosted by the publishers of Lexpert, Canadian Lawyer and Canadian Lawyer InHouse magazines at the Liberty Grand in Toronto on May 11, 2023.

This recognition follows Smart & Biggar’s recognition as an Excellence Awardee on the shortlist for ‘IP Boutique Law Firm of the Year’, and our inclusion last year in Canadian Lawyer Magazine’s list of ‘Top IP Boutiques’ in Canada. The firm is honoured to receive these accolades, in reflection of the high quality of IP advice and counsel we provide to our clients and our continued record of success on their behalf.

“We are proud to earn this distinction which reflects the trust and confidence of our clients and peers, and the steady focus of our leading IP practitioners on delivering strategic IP services that are worthy of the award.”

Matthew Zischka, Managing Director of the firm
