Our services are as unique as are our clients. We provide strategic developmental guidance and legal counsel that is specifically tailored to fit our client’s unique needs. We view our client’s intellectual property not in a vacuum, but with the understanding that intellectual property is part of an overarching business plan, not only for today, but for tomorrow as well.  

After all intellectual property is a business tool that allows the corporation the profit from its ingenuity and innovation. As such our goal at SorbaraLaw is to ensure that your product is not only protected, but is brought to market.

SorbaraLaw’s success is measured not only by the type of intellectual property service that is provided, but by the success of our client’s to prosper in the ever changing market.

We cater to a wide range of clients; from entrepreneurial start-ups to publicly trades companies to multi-national corporations.   

The members of SorbaraLaw’s technology group have represented clients in such diverse technology industries as pharmaceuticals, virtual reality content distribution, telecommunications, online gaming and animated feature film production. While many law firms offer such services as private equity, intellectual property protection and software licensing, SorbaraLaw is unique in the Waterloo Region by supporting such offerings both with extensive legal expertise in IP litigation and international corporate tax planning (essential when structuring debt or equity to be held by foreign investors) and with practical business experience as founding principals and in-house legal counsel of technology companies.
