Bennett Jones has a thriving IP team across its five Canadian offices, and while it is best known for its prosecution capabilities, the firm provides a 360-degree service and skilfully handles contentious and transactional mandates too. Division co-heads Dominique Hussey and Stephen Burns are poised and ready to assist clients who come calling for sage counsel. “At the vanguard of Canadian patent practice, Dominique is a role model to many lawyers”, enthuses one peer. “She is very active in the IP community and she is undoubtedly a great success. If she ever decides to become a judge, she will be one of the greatest of all time.” Burns is a technology transfer guru who spends much of his time bringing IP-related transactions in the energy sector to a swift and successful close. By his side, Michael Whitt QC has an aptitude for all things technical. He has spent more than three decades maximising asset value and deftly navigating licence agreements. Turning to prosecution, Irene Bridger, Edward Yoo, and Roseann Caldwell are on hand to provide astute and strategic advice. Bridger and Yoo leverage their microbiology backgrounds to provide refined solutions to a glittering life sciences clientele, while Caldwell’s former stint in-house at General Electric Canada Inc means she has a deep grasp of the importance of intangible assets in a company’s overall success.
