Canada’s Intellectual Property Firm

Smart & Biggar stands out with eight Principals recognized as IP leaders in the 2023 edition of Lexpert/ALM 500

Smart & Biggar is proud to share that eight Principals across the firm have been recognized among Canada’s leading lawyers for intellectual property (IP) in the 2023 edition of The Lexpert/American Lawyer Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada (the Lexpert/ALM 500).

Smart & Biggar stands out in the guide once again as Canada’s leading firm in IP with more featured lawyers than any other firm, upholding our distinguished reputation and unmatched expertise in IP.

Congratulations to Mark Biernacki, Christian Bolduc, Mark Evans, François Guay, Philip Lapin, Nancy Pei and Matthew Zischka, named leading lawyers for IP, and Steven Garland, identified as a leading lawyer for both IP and IP Litigation.

Smart & Biggar was also the only IP firm to be listed in each of the ‘Who’s Who” charts for IP across all markets: Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Vancouver. Additionally, the firm was recognized as a leader for technology law in Vancouver.

The Lexpert/ALM 500 guide is considered the leading resource for US-based lawyers seeking Canadian counsel and identifies the 500 “Most Frequently Recommended” lawyers across Canada with a cross-border multijurisdictional practice. Lawyers are nominated through an annual peer survey, reflecting their highly regarded reputation in the industry.

The full list of the 2023 edition of Lexpert/ALM 500 is available to view online. We congratulate our lawyers for this impressive recognition.
