With six offices across the country and 730 practitioners firmwide, Borden Ladner Gervais is one of Canada's largest general practice firms. It has an IP practice at each of its offices and a team of 55 IP professionals. The firm has a diverse practice representing companies such as Cenovus, Precision Drilling, Dywidag, Multimatic, Lindt and the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants.
Borden Ladner's IP group follows a multi-disciplinary approach, working with other departments of the firm, as well as with other offices, when the need arises.
The firm added a new IP partner at its Vancouver office in 2012, hiring Alaka Chatterjee, previously a patent agent with Gowling Lafleur Henderson. Chatterjee has a background in biology and biochemistry.
