Gowlings is pleased to welcome Brian Kingwell, one of Canada’s leading intellectual property lawyers, as a partner in the firm’s Vancouver office.

Both a lawyer and registered patent and trade-mark agent, Kingwell brings over 20 years of patent-prosecution and strategic patent-portfolio counselling experience. His expertise spans the life sciences, technology, and oil and gas sectors, and, in 2012, he was named Vancouver’s “Lawyer of the Year” for biotechnology by Best Lawyers. Prior to joining Gowlings, he was a partner at a national intellectual property law firm.

“Brian is an outstanding addition to our Intellectual Property Group,” said Scott Jolliffe, Gowlings chair and CEO. “He’s a highly respected intellectual property practitioner, and his clients benefit from his strategic IP advice, his deep understanding of both legal and technical issues, and his strong business acumen. We’re thrilled to have him as a member of our team.”

In describing his move to Gowlings, Kingwell pointed to the firm’s reputation for excellence in IP, along with its strength in business law and litigation. “As a full-service law firm, Gowlings can provide my clients with the highest quality of service across a range of practices and industries. Gowlings is also extremely supportive of Canadian innovators, and is known for delivering a host of services that help them nurture, protect and grow their businesses.”

Kingwell has been recognized as a leading practitioner in intellectual property and biotechnology by both the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory and Best Lawyers in Canada. He has also been featured in IAM Patent 1000 – The World's Leading Patent Practitioners for the past two years.

The Gowlings Intellectual Property Group has been recognized as top-tier in Canada in Managing IP’s prestigious annual survey for nearly two decades. With an award-winning team of approximately 160 IP professionals across Canada and in Russia and the U.K., Gowlings serves a diverse clientele ranging from innovative start-ups to leading global brands, helping them to strategically protect their intangible assets and maximize long-term value.
