Firstly, we are not a law firm – we are patent consultants. Having worked for both large law firms and as in-house counsel, it was clear that clients are best served when someone worked intimately with both inventors and company directors, without having to worry about hitting billing targets.
Secondly, we want to get world-class patents into the hands of Canadian companies to help them compete globally. For although we tend to think of ourselves as very innovative people, Canada ranks only 15th in both innovation and patenting. We need the world to take Canadian competitors seriously.
….. And so, we’ve made it our mission to help Canadian tech companies punch above their weight with enforceable global patents.
