BLG releases fourth edition of Life Sciences & Chemistry Patent Practice in Canada: A Practical Guide

National (March 15, 2022) - The fields of life sciences and chemistry in Canada are rapidly expanding and innovation in biotechnology is critical for preparing for the future. 

Our newly released fourth edition of Life Sciences & Chemistry Patent Practice In Canada: A Practical Guide will keep our readers up to date on changes to patent practice that are relevant to the industry while outlining the aspects of Canadian patent practice most relevant to our clients in Canada and around the world.
