Intellectual Property

Your ideas are important to us

We have extensive experience with:

  • Copyrights
  • Intellectual Property Litigation
  • Licensing
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Trademarks

We are proud to be one of the few firms in Saskatchewan to focus on intellectual property (IP) matters. Intellectual property is unique in that it’s often breaking new ground and needs new strategies. Our team is up to the challenge and quick on our feet to make sure that you can maximize the value of your IP in any form.

While this field is in a state of perpetual flux and evolution, our lawyers have extensive experience. Our practice includes close involvement with the ag-biotech industry, such as genetic typing, crop/seed issues, trade secret issues, and value-added processes. We anticipate information technology issues, and we work with everything from mobile phone apps to large hardware and software acquisitions and licenses. We have dealt with all forms of trade mark registrations, oppositions, and related matters.

IP issues extend far beyond technology companies — trademarks, confidentiality of information among employees, non-competition or non-solicitation matters and proper licensing of computer software are just a few items that almost every business faces. With the explosion of the internet, privacy laws, and collaborative technology, more and more businesses are seeking out proactive lawyers for intellectual property challenges. Lakefield can work with you to prevent future problems and provide proactive solutions to problems you don’t even know you have.
