Toronto-based IP boutique firm Dimock Stratton boasts a bench of talented partners who have collectively served in more than 50 patent, trade mark and copyright trials over the past 30 years and have appeared as counsel in leading patent cases before the Supreme Court of Canada. Competitors rave that the firm is known for offering its clients “encyclopedic, highly substantial, and almost God-like” knowledge of patents.
Peers refer to Ronald Dimock, whose representation sealed a favourable judgement for client SNF after a six-week trial, as one of the most “shrewd” patent litigators in the business, commend him as an “excellent” practitioner, and add that he is “one of the most experienced IP litigators in Canada”. Name partner Bruce Stratton, who has practised exclusively in IP law since his call to the Ontario Bar in 1987, also enjoys a reputation as an effective and talented litigator. He serves as lead counsel for NorthVu in a patent infringement case relating to the delivery of audio/visual signals to consumers.
Trade Mark & Copyright
With ten partners who focus exclusively on intellectual property matters, Dimock Stratton’s legal team has served as counsel in more than fifty patent, trade mark, and copyright trials over the past thirty years and in a diverse array of complex patent cases involving technology ranging from pharmaceuticals and medical devices, to computer software and hardware, to industrial equipment.
In an ongoing matter about ownership of copyright and patent rights in software relating to business-location maps, founding partner Bruce Stratton serves as lead partner for Locationary, Grant Ritchie, and Sergejs Marins. Stratton has extensive experience in patent, trade mark, and copyright litigation with a particular emphasis on patent disputes concerning computer-related technology.
