His clients range from individual inventors to large Canadian corporations, and he also has extensive experience managing international IP portfolios for foreign and Canadian entities.
On the trademark side, Adam has devised branding strategies for clients in numerous industries and assists with all aspects of the trademark process from initial brand selection and clearance to rights acquisition and enforcement matters when required.
