Protect your inventions

Patent protection may be available for your inventions. To apply for a patent, full information about your invention must be supplied to the patent office of the country in which you require protection. Your applications are then reviewed by patent examiners. Upon publication or issuance, the information is made available to the public.

After the expiration of the patent protection period, which in Canada and the U.S. is 20 years, competitors may copy the invention legally.

Our intellectual property lawyers and patent agents assist entrepreneurs and businesses to secure patent protection in Canada and worldwide with the assistance of our network of foreign associates.
