The partners and members of Ridout & Maybee LLP offer their most sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of our former partner William (Bill) Hayhurst who passed away on February 27, 2011 after a long illness.
Bill Hayhurst joined Ridout & Maybee LLP in 1950 and practised with the firm for 40 years. Among his many accomplishments, Bill was President of the Patent and Trademark Institute of Canada (now IPIC) in 1966-67, and was President of the Canadian Group of AIPPI from 1980 to 1983. He also wrote prolifically on all aspects of IP law and taught at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law.
Bill had many friends and admirers at Ridout & Maybee LLP and within the IP Bar and he will be missed.
