Event Banner IWW

Event Details

Join Smart & Biggar for breakfast as we chat with IP experts and business owners about the opportunities and benefits of an IP strategy to support your business objectives. You may see IP rights as only mattering to inventors, but IP rights take many forms and are commercial assets that can create commercial value for any business.

We’ll talk to women leaders and executives who have experienced the advantages and pitfalls of trying to navigate the IP landscape for their own businesses to better understand how IP can be leveraged as a key element of any good business strategy.

The panel will be moderated by Christine Genge, partner and member of the Executive at Smart & Biggar. With extensive expertise in patent, trademark and industrial design IP and a background in mechanical engineering, she advises businesses from start-ups to Fortune 50 companies and innovators on securing patent, trademark and industrial design protection. Christine assists international clients in securing IP protection in Canada, advising on portfolio management, enforcement and freedom-to-operate, and works with Canadian innovators to secure IP protection domestically, in the U.S. and abroad.
