Canada’s Intellectual Property Firm

Smart & Biggar honoured as Canada’s leading intellectual property litigation firm for the eighth consecutive year at the Benchmark Litigation Canada Awards

Smart & Biggar is honoured to be named “Intellectual Property Litigation Firm of the Year” once again at the 2022 Benchmark Litigation Canada Awards. The award was announced at an in-person gala awards ceremony at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto on May 5, 2022.

This marks the eighth consecutive year that Smart & Biggar has received this honour in recognition of the important victories we have championed for our valued clients in high-stakes litigation, across all areas of IP law.

This award is in addition to our top rank position in the recent 2022 edition Benchmark Canada guide which featured 11 partners as “Litigation Stars” and 3 “Future Stars” for IP Litigation. Benchmark editors reaffirmed Smart & Biggar’s position as a dominant force and undisputed market leader in IP litigation across Canada, and reflect our distinguished team of trial lawyers, continued record of success and our unmatched level of expertise in all areas of IP. 

“As Canada's largest IP-specific shop and the only one to be integrated on a national level, with practitioners in Ontario, Québec and Alberta recognized as litigation stars by Benchmark, Smart & Biggar has routinely demonstrated its prowess in the patent, trademark and copyright capacities for a broad and varied range of clients and has also displayed an unwavering commitment to litigating these matters”

Congratulations to all of our IP Litigation & Enforcement team members on this notable achievement! 

The Benchmark Canada Awards recognize the “leading litigators and most impactful disputes across Canada based upon research conducted between October and January 2022” and these aim to acknowledge “firms and litigators who have performed exceptionally at both local and national levels in the past year.”
