Ranking excerpt:

“There is no question that Bereskin & Parr is one of Canada’s best IP boutiques. This is evidenced by the fact that it has occupied top-tier rankings in every edition of the IAM Patent 1000 since it was first published in 2012 and consistently has multiple individuals recommended in all areas of patent practice. Lighting up the country’s litigation scene are Scott MacKendrick, Robert MacFarlane and Donald Cameron, all seasoned advocates with benchmark wins to their name. Worthy of special mention this year is IAM Patent 1000 debutant Adam Bobker, “a next-generation litigator with a fine tactical appreciation who produces top-grade work”. Making Bereskin & Parr a go to for high-quality prosecution are Micheline Gravelle, who leads the life sciences and cannabis practices; Patricia Folkins, who takes charge of the chemical group; Philip Mendes da Costa, who helms the mechanical and industrial process practice; electrical and computer chief Bhupinder Randhawa; and designs chair Robert Storey. Victor Krichker and Noel Courage have patent licensing on lock; both regularly publish and speak on the subject – Krichker focuses on high-tech deals, while Courage concentrates on the life sciences.”
