WeirFoulds lawyers have acted in some of the country’s landmark cases and more than half of them practise before courts and tribunals in Canada and other jurisdictions.

 

"I've been working with WeirFoulds for many years now on all our trademark issues in Canada and the USA,” explains Forge Media + Design Principal and RGD President Stussy Tschudin. “It is great to have a major law firm, where your lawyer actually picks up the phone when you call and is ready to give advice. The responsiveness has definitely been a huge asset, as well as the fact that they are able to deal with trademark issues here as well as in the USA."

The partnership kicks off with an hour-long webinar on May 7 exploring Canada’s new anti-spam law.
