Smart & Biggar partners recognized in the 2022 edition of IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists

Smart & Biggar is proud to share that Ottawa partner and Chair of the firm Daphne Lainson and Montréal partner Sanjay Goorachurn have been recognized once again in the 2022 edition of IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists.

Daphne is known as a “biopharmaceutical ace” (IAM Patents 1000, 2020) who “impresses clients with her [pharmaceuticals] regulatory know-how and ability to distil legal complexities into [concise] readable reports.” (IAM Patents 1000, 2021).

Clients and peers have described Sanjay as a lawyer “known to be innovative in his approach to structuring deals” (IAM Patents 1000, 2021).

The IAM Strategy 300 – The World’s Leading IP Strategists identifies individuals who are leading the way in the development and implementation of strategies that maximize the value of IP portfolios. No individual can qualify for a listing in the IAM Strategy 300 unless they are nominated by at least three people from outside of their own organization. Only individuals whose further research shows to have exceptional skill sets, as well as profound insights into the development, creation and management of IP value, are featured in the IAM Strategy 300.

Congratulations to Daphne and Sanjay for leading the way in the patent industry to support the development and implementation of strategies, while strengthening the value of IP portfolios for their clients.

All listed individuals are available to view online: IAM Strategy 300.
