Aird & Berlis and Aird & McBurney are proud to be recognized in the Canada section of the 2021 edition of the IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals, a guide that identifies the top patent firms and professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe.

Firm highlights from this year's editorial include:

"Dynamic outfit Aird & Berlis | Aird & McBurney has been going from strength to strength lately: its prosecution practice is widely respected and its contentious division has started turning heads too. The group has an affinity for the life sciences and many members – including Kimberly McManus and Lola Bartoszewicz – come equipped with PhDs, reflecting the firm’s scientific expertise. McManus drafts applications with a view to generating business value and strengthening clients’ portfolios; while Bartoszewicz showcases exceptional range and has recently been venturing into the field of environmental technologies. Companies looking to launch their products and gain a favourable market position have a great partner in Erica Lowthers; while Kitt Sinden acquits himself with distinction when representing pharmaceutical heavyweights before the Canadian Patent Appeal Board, as well as the Patent Reissue Board and the Patented Medicines Prices Review Board. Companies embroiled in heavy-duty disputes are also in safe hands with Timothy Lowman and Trent Horne on board. Lowman has handled a wide spectrum of commercial and IP skirmishes during his four decades of practice, giving him superb advocacy skills. Horne is a frequent contributor to two leading publications on Federal Court practice and procedure, whose technical knowledge is “second to none”. "
