TORONTO, Oct. 16 /CNW/ - Bereskin & Parr LLP, one of Canada's leading intellectual property (IP) firms, is launching a Clean Tech Practice in response to the unprecedented levels of innovation in a wide range of alternative products and services, including energy, green building, infrastructure, environmental and other clean technologies.
"Our goal is to help clients secure and protect their patents and other intellectual property in clean technologies. The science is often in the same subject areas where our firm has more than 45 years of experience - electrical and software, biotech, chemical and mechanical. Our Clean Tech Practice focuses this technical strength on clean technology patents and adds our immense practical experience gained from advising clients on legal issues in clean tech business environments," says Scott R. Pundsack, co-chair of the new practice. "While the economy continues to present challenges, many of our clients are investing in the development of new technologies in clean tech, environmental or energy fields. Patent and marketing law are changing to meet the specific needs of these sectors, and we are too."
"We are seeing more and more businesses turn environmentally sustainable ideas and innovations into significant wealth," says Isis E. Caulder, who co-chairs the practice. "Since our Clean Tech Practice includes lawyers and patent agents with strong engineering and science educational backgrounds and industry experience, we are well equipped to help them strategically protect their technology. Our Clean Tech Practice also includes lawyers and trade mark agents with expertise in the application of advertising, packaging and labelling, competition and trade mark law to green or environmentally friendly products ."
The firm has been working with clients on matters such as filing and prosecuting patent applications, patent licensing, technology transfer, enforcing patent and trade mark rights, and other issues related to the funding, protection and commercialization of clean technology IP in Canada and around the globe.
