I assists clients with the creation, protection, management, commercialization, licensing and enforcement of their intellectual property rights including patents, trademarks, copyright, industrial designs and trade secrets. I also represents clients in domain name disputes.

My experience and successes as an entrepreneur in a sports and technology SME have provided him with first-hand perspective of the intellectual property issues and concerns when starting and running a company.

I have extensive experience drafting and prosecution of patent applications worldwide in a broad range of technologies including biochemistry, medical devices, environmental sciences and general mechanical inventions. I also has experience in drafting and negotiating intellectual property agreements, including assignment, partnership, agency, service, publishing, manufacturing, design, sales, supply, distribution, consulting, research, development, marketing, employment, independent contractor, non-disclosure, confidentiality and licensing agreements.

I am an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Bachelor of Applied Technology (Biotechnology) at La Cite Collegiale in Ottawa. I have also been a guest lecturer at the University of Ottawa on exceptions to exclusive rights conferred by patents, the Patented Medicines Price Review Board (PMPRB) and Canada’s Access to Medicines Regime as part of a larger course on intellectual property law as it relates to biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.
