Craig Zawada, Q.C.Intellectual Property
WMCZ is one of the few firms in Saskatchewan to make intellectual property (IP) law a core practice area. Not only does this permit state of the art solutions for dealing with specific IP issues but it helps integrate those issues with the rest of your business’s operations.
Our lawyers have worked with intellectual property for over two decades. WMCZ’s practice includes close involvement with the ag-biotech industry, such as genetic typing, crop/seed issues, trade secret issues, and value added processes.
Information technology issues are also common and we work with everything from mobile phone apps to large hardware/software acquisitions. We are Registered Trade Mark Agents and have dealt with all forms of trade mark registrations, oppositions and related matters.
It isn’t just technology companies that have intellectual property issues. Trade-marks, confidentiality of information among employees and proper licensing of computer software are just a few items that almost every business faces. We also do work to prevent future problems, such as business audits to ensure licensing requirements are being followed.
