Before joining the BCF team in 2002, Mr. Lauzon practised in a national firm specialized in intellectual property law. He has been a partner since January 2011.
Mr. Lauzon now practises various aspects of intellectual property law, namely trade-marks, patents, copyright, industrial designs, and trade secrets. His expertise enables him to quickly act to obtain decisions or carry out the required seizure to intervene in an infringement of intellectual property rights. He can also assist clients with various regulatory matters involving signs and advertising such as the requirements of the Charter of the French Language, electronic communications, the protection of personal information and labelling. Mr. Lauzon is a member of the Barreau du Québec and the American Bar Association, Section of Intellectual Property Law, in addition to being recognized by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) as a trade-mark agent, where he regularly acts in connection to opposition proceedings.
Mr. Lauzon is also a civil and commercial mediator certified by the Quebec Bar and can help businesses find practical and constructive solutions to their commercial disputes, whether they involve intellectual property or other issues. Mediation is playing an increasingly important role in dispute settlement and should be seriously considered in most cases.
