The Patent 1000 focuses exclusively on patent practice and has firmly established itself as the definitive 'go-to' resource for those seeking world-class legal patent expertise.
Bronze - Individuals: litigation
Finding creative ways to secure optimum results in hard-hitting disputes, Belmore Neidrauer is one of Canada’s premier IP litigation groups and the first port of call for many industry leaders. For example, the team recently represented Janssen against TEVA in a patent infringement action brought under the new PM(NOC) Regulations concerning its schizophrenia medicine. Peter Wilcox and Marian Wolanski brought home the victory. Wilcox has served his clientele with unwavering commitment over the course of his 25-year career, particularly in the pharmaceutical space, and has made several Supreme Court appearances along the way. Wolanski’s training in molecular biology allows her to recognise and deconstruct difficult scientific concerns, all while navigating the complexities of patent litigation. Making her debut in the IAM Patent 1000 this year is Stephanie Anderson, who has been fighting tooth and nail on behalf of Pfizer in an infringement action involving EpiPens. She keeps her cool in court and is a key asset in expert witness cross-examinations.
