Aird & McBurney | Aird & Berlis Patent Professionals Recognized as Leaders in Canada

Lola A. Bartoszewicz, PhD, Kimberly A. McManus, PhD, Timothy M. Lowman and L.E. Trent Horne

Aird & McBurney and Aird & Berlis are proud to be recognized in the Canada chapter of IAM Patent 1000 – The World's Leading Patent Professionals 2018. Highlights from the editorial coverage include:

The seamless cooperation between Aird & Berlis and Aird & McBurney puts patrons on a sure footing from the get-go; applications are drafted deftly, licensing contracts inked favourably and enforcement campaigns waged with appropriate muscle.

Captaining the IP team, Timothy M Lowman brings 35 years of transactions experience to the table; when it comes to touch-and-go negotiations, he is a miracle worker.

The “seriously effective and wonderful to work with” Lola Bartoszewicz and Kimberly McManus excel on the prosecution side. Bartoszewicz provides “superb assistance” with regard to national stage applications, while clients effuse of McManus: “She’s really helpful and diligent, dealing with everything in a timely, economical manner. For example, when reporting office actions, she provides an additional, detailed letter, informing clients of the best possible way to overcome a rejection.”

Since joining the team in September 2017 Trent Horne has electrified the contentious practice. He is an “extremely competent litigator” who has led cases at the highest levels.
