Strategic Counselling, Opinions, & Intellectual Property Portfolio Management

Ridout & Maybee LLP’s approach is to optimize intellectual property protection of our client’s technology, while mitigating third party intellectual property infringement risks. After intimately understanding our client’s business and competitive landscape, we create frameworks to protect trade secrets and capture intellectual property for developed technology. We help our clients identify and assess freedom to operate risks, choose from suitable vehicles for intellectual property protection, design and execute intellectual property filing strategies, draft, file, and prosecute applications for intellectual property registration, and manage their worldwide intellectual property portfolios.

We align our approach with our client’s business strategies. This could be to stake out a monopoly position to chill competitors, monetize through enforcement and licensing, facilitate third party financing and business acquisitions, or build up a defensive intellectual property portfolio to shield and counter-assert versus intellectual property infringement claims.

We have counselled, and managed the worldwide intellectual property portfolios for some of Canada’s largest businesses. We also function as Canadian intellectual property counsel for many significant multinational companies. Additionally, we have extensive experience in successfully guiding start-ups and early stage companies by nurturing and growing their patent portfolios. This is attributable to our specialized expertise, extensive experience across a wide variety of technologies, and a unique firm culture that helps facilitate collaboration and delivery of exceptional services in our clients’ best interests.
