TRADEMARK PRACTICE - Canada - FOREIGN CLIENTS REGISTERING IN CANADA
(Note: you must be a Canadian Trademark Agent to buy this practice)
The seller enjoyed a long career as an IP lawyer/trademark agent both in-house and in government positions.
Following retirement from full-time practice 3 years ago, the seller has maintained a part-time Trademark Law Practice. The seller works approximately 15 hours per week and deals exclusively with foreign clients registering trademarks in Canada.
This practice has minimal overhead as it is completely internet based. The seller works from a home office.
Although it is currently based out of British Columbia, the physical location is not being transferred and the buyer could be located anywhere in Canada. The buyer needs to be a Registered Trademark Agent in Canada.
The seller registers Trademark applications, handles Office Actions, Opposition Proceedings and Section 45 Cancellation Proceedings.
