BLG bags IP lawyers from Bereskin & Parr

A whole crew from Bereskin & Parr LLP has taken their intellectual property practice over to Borden Ladner Gervais LLP.

Justine Wiebe, Christine Pallotta, and Scott Pundsack have all joined the Toronto office of BLG as partners.

“When the three of us assessed client needs, we realized that BLG’s platform would allow us to provide the optimum level of service to our existing and future clients,” said Wiebe. “Now, at BLG, we can offer all the benefits of an IP boutique firm within a full-service law firm.

Wiebe has extensive experience with international trade-mark portfolios and pharmaceutical marks, providing clients with strategic guidance from a global perspective. Pallotta is a skilled litigator whose practice encompasses all fields of IP law, including pharmaceutical patent litigation and notice of compliance proceedings. And Pundsack is a registered patent agent who focuses on patent prosecution and licensing.

Joachim Fritz, the head of BLG’s national IP group says the addition of the Bereskin & Parr lawyers is part of his firm’s “aggressive growth strategy for the Ontario market.”
