Equally as impressive in prosecution, litigation and transactions, Bennett Jones’ patent agents and lawyers work in tandem to produce exemplary results. With offices in Canada, the United States and China, the side serves clients all over the world and has developed an extensive network to call on for back-up as needed. The prosecution unit can handle matters in a variety of fields, but flourishes in the life sciences, where Irene Bridger and Edward Yoo capitalise on their backgrounds in microbiology to advise major players. Adding to its dexterity is chemistry ace Roseann Caldwell, who brings a strategic eye to the management of large portfolios. Dominique Hussey is “a delightful and very well-known lawyer who is extremely active in the profession”; her mastery of regulatory issues also comes in handy when executing licensing agreements. At the heart of the transactional practice are Stephen Burns and Michael Whitt, who both bring longstanding experience to the table. Burns is at home leading large multi-vendor outsourcing transactions, and Whitt is always on hand to provide commercially on-point advice.
