Tuba Yamaç

Partner at BCF Business Law

Tuba Yamaç has a particularly international outlook, having started off her career as a UK and European patent attorney in the United Kingdom, before moving to Canada and practising as a registered Canadian patent agent. Her understanding of patent law and practice in these different patent jurisdictions provide her with a strategic edge and make her a highly valued adviser to many businesses.

Ms Yamaç’s prior experience as director of intellectual property at a medical device company has provided her with an ability to understand the needs of businesses as they grow locally and expand internationally. She is a trusted adviser to clients ranging from start-ups to larger corporations helping them build IP portfolios including international filing and procurement strategies, investment/partnering preparation and support, as well as commercial transaction support.

Ms Yamaç holds a PhD in biomedical materials and specialises in the technology areas of medical devices, connected health technologies, biomaterials and cleantech. She is trilingual, and regularly represents the Québec life sciences business ecosystem in the United Kingdom, the United States, France and Scandinavia. She also enjoys teaching patent law and is an invited speaker at the annual LifeSciences UK patent attorney conference (Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys) and the McGill/IPIC patent course in Montreal; she has contributed to a chapter in Life Sciences Law in Canada, Carswell.
