In the words of one client: “The team at McCarthy Tétrault is wonderful to deal with and consistently provides excellent trademark assistance.” The outfit advises some of the world’s most well-known brands, builds long-term relationships and has been on excellent form in litigation lately. It is also the only Canadian firm in INCOPRO – a network of law firms across the globe that provides businesses facing IP infringement with innovative technology solutions and litigation support. Contentious heavyweights David Tait and Daniel Glover are fierce representatives in disputes. In the software and technology industry, Tait is the go-to for legally sound and commercially focused support, while Glover is an engineering ace who has recently been occupied in a number of tricky cases for Robert Bosch, a German-based engineering company. Meanwhile, portfolio management and enforcement advice is handled deftly by Amy Fong, “a highly-qualified patent and trademark attorney, who has an extremely responsive, available and cost-conscious approach”. A sound adviser in prosecution and a sharp deal maker, “Vincent Kam-Sun Yip’s love for intellectual property is contagious. His counsel is strategic, clear, and profitable, and he offers free training to help businesses further their own IP knowledge”. Completing the stellar line up is prosecution and business practice lead Alfred Macchione. While the shrewd negotiator is perhaps best known for his transactional acumen, his extensive industry knowledge helps him to devise the most effective portfolio management strategies.
