Silver - Individuals: litigation

An integral part of one of the largest European and international patent groups, the Canadian contingent of DLA Piper works with its counterparts all over the world to provide joined-up support to a discerning client base. For example, Bruce Stratton and Alan Macek have been representing Videotron, one of the country’s largest telecommunications providers, in infringement proceedings brought by Rovi and Tivo; and enforcing patents for Canadian Energy Services to ensure that it retains its competitive market position. Stratton is hailed by peers as “an excellent and thoughtful litigator”; while Macek is always up to date on the latest developments in the field and receives praise for his “client-focused approach”. Joining them this year is Geoffrey Mowatt, a superb litigator with an intimate understanding of regulatory and compliance practices. He and Stratton have recently been acting for Pfizer in Canada’s first biosimilar patent infringement action, brought by Janssen.
