Canada’s Intellectual Property Firm

Smart & Biggar ranked ‘Top-tier’ for Trademarks in Canada by MIP IP Stars 2023

Smart & Biggar is proud to announce that our Trademark practice continues to lead the market in Canada with rankings in ‘Tier 1’ for both Trademark Prosecution and Trademark Contentious matters once again by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) in IP STARS 2023.

MIP IP Stars rankings recognize the world’s leading firms for trademark filing, prosecution and contentious work in more than 50 jurisdictions. For ranking under Trademark Prosecution, consideration is given to pre and post-registration work including office proceedings as well as portfolio management advice, while the Trademark Contentious ranking considers trademark-related disputes (in and outside the courts) and anti-counterfeiting work.

Smart & Biggar is proud to be consistently recognized by MIP IP Stars as one of the world’s leading firms for trademarks at the top of the Canadian market since the guide’s inception. In our 130-year history, we have registered more than 100,000 trademarks in Canada, and we provide ongoing portfolio management advice and counsel to some of the world’s most notable brands. Our leading team of litigators has also successfully represented clients in many of Canada’s landmark trademark enforcement and litigation decisions.

This release for Trademarks is the first set of ranking results from the research for the 2023 edition of IP STARS, which have been generated by MIP’s team of researchers and include client and peer interviews to assess firm expertise, workload, market reputation/record, outcomes achieved for clients, and unique strengths in a given practice area.
