Intellectual Property Lawyers

Oyen Wiggs Green & Mutala LLP is Western Canada’s largest independent intellectual property law firm. Established in 1977, our Vancouver law firm is deeply rooted in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, and our wide-reaching network of associates enables us to advance our clients’ interests around the world.

We practice intellectual property law exclusively and deal with the full range of legal matters in this field – including patents, trademarks, copyrights, industrial designs, trade secrets, computer and Internet law, technology transfer and licensing, and related litigation.

We help clients ranging from entrepreneurial start-ups to multinational enterprises in protecting their intellectual property assets. As a midsize firm, we are small enough to cultivate personalized client-lawyer relationships, but also large enough to have the breadth to handle a wide range of intellectual property matters to meet your requirements as your business grows and evolves.

Members of our firm have proven legal track records and are active in teaching, publishing and community service. Our lawyers are qualified to practice law in British Columbia, and are registered as patent and trademark agents in both the Canadian Intellectual Property Office and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Our litigation practice has our lawyers appearing regularly before the Federal Court, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, and the Trademarks Opposition Board. Our lawyers have also successfully appealed cases to the Federal Court of Appeal, the British Columbia Court of Appeal and the Patent Appeal Board.

Given our diversity of technical expertise outside of law – including engineering, physics, software, electronics, chemistry, and biotechnology – you will find someone here who speaks your language.

Ideas are our passion. We’d welcome an opportunity to learn about yours, and to work with you on a legal strategy to maximize your intellectual property interests.
