Cassels’ Investment in Patent Litigation Recognized by IAM Patent 1000 2024


Cassels is excited to be recognized among Canada’s leading law firms by IAM Patent 1000 2024.

IAM praises the firm’s work on complex matters, and specifically recommends partners Andrew Skodyn and Mark Davis:

“Making its debut in the IAM Patent 1000 this year, Cassels Brock & Blackwell excels at navigating technically complex briefs. The IP team leverages the wider firm’s resources and cutting-edge systems to deliver a wonderfully joined-up service. Joining the team in December 2023, Andrew Skodyn is a super trial lawyer, skilled and diligent in his approach. His mastery of oral arguments makes his clients inspired and his opponents fearful. Mark Davis offers very practical and strategic advice. He is a skilled and effective litigator that you can truly rely on to deliver results.”

Over the past two years, Cassels has broadened our top-tier intellectual property practice through the addition of several prominent patent and trademark partners, including Mark, Andrew, Sean Jackson, Karen MacDonald, and Jennifer McKenzie.

“It is great to see Cassels recognized for its ongoing commitment to be the leading Canadian IP practice,” says group chair Casey Chisick. “Our team has enjoyed tremendous success and the patent litigation practice is an integral part of our comprehensive IP offering.”
