Gowling WLG named top Canadian firm for PCT international filings

15 January 2018

Gowling WLG has been distinguished as Canada's top international patent filer in the IP Stars PCT Leaders 2017 report.

The report ranks the top patent agencies and law firms by the total number of international Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) applications they filed between January 2014 and December 2016. There were more than 664,000 applications filed worldwide during this time frame.

The PCT affords international patent applicants the opportunity to protect their inventions across multiple global jurisdictions with a single application.

In 2017, Gowling WLG was recognized among the world's leading firms for patents, trademarks and copyright by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP), a highly respected IP publication. The firm has been consistently ranked among the top IP practices worldwide since MIP began conducting its IP survey (now known as "IP Stars" listings) more than 20 years ago.

Gowling WLG's award-winning group of patent agents and patent lawyers have earned a reputation as the go-to team for those seeking ironclad protection for their most valuable innovations.
