At McMillan we are committed to fostering growth and professional development of our young lawyers. Our in-house experts, Peter Giddens, Sharon Groom and Keith Bird presented a two-part IP Primer on “Intellectual Property Fundamentals for Business Lawyers” to help junior and senior level business lawyers understand the legal complexities of IP law in Canada.
