Rowand LLP is a Toronto-based firm of lawyers, patent agents and trade-mark agents that is focused on assisting technology companies. Each of our lawyers has a computer science or electrical engineering background and each understands the intellectual property issues that are unique to technology companies. Our patent attorneys regularly assist Canadian technology companies to obtain patent protection, both in Canada and abroad. Our clients range from multi-national tech companies to start-ups and we regularly assist early stage companies to establish customized intellectual property strategies which consider the client’s exit strategy, financing, and the competitive landscape for the client’s field of technology. Our trade-mark lawyers also assist clients with their branding efforts by performing clearance searches to ensure that a proposed name is available and by securing protection for names, logos, and other trade-marks.
