At Bereskin & Parr, we’re passionate about intellectual property. We excel at protecting and monetizing creativity and innovation. We help our clients build successful companies, many of which have transformed their business areas and, in some cases, transformed the world. It’s this passion that inspired our founding partners to launch a full-service intellectual property firm in 1965, and it’s what has allowed us to become one of the largest and most reputable IP practices in Canada.
We take great care to fully understand each client’s business goals, where they stand today, and where they want to go. This information is integral to creating a strong roadmap and a successful partnership.
Each of our lawyers, patent agents and trademark agents are deeply invested in our clients’ successes—and we are in it for the long haul. This commitment comes through in our leading advice—delivered by a deep bench of talented practitioners with advanced technical degrees and substantial experience —and in the practical way we deliver and implement it.
Whether you’re coming to us for IP strategy and advisory support, patents, trademarks, technology contracting, IP litigation or one of our other services, you can expect the backing of an experienced and award-winning team, honest and cost-effective legal advice, and proven systems to support your needs.
The firm’s core values have distinguished Bereskin & Parr’s culture for over 50 years. They are the firm’s foundation and continue to influence our interactions to this day. Our teams work together to produce outstanding results, to provide strategic advice and to deliver quality services to our clients.
