We are pleased to announce that the 2022 Canadian Law Awards has selected Oyen Wiggs as one of the Excellence Award recipients in the category of “IP Boutique Law Firm of the Year.”

This also makes our firm a finalist for the Gold Winner Award, which will be announced May 19th, 2022.

The firm awards for “IP Boutique Law Firm of the Year” are judged on the quantity, quality, importance, and innovativeness of legal work performed during 2021 and are open to all Canada-based law firms that derived at least 50% of their revenue from IP matters.

This year’s nomination marks Oyen Wiggs’ third consecutive recognition by the Canadian Law Awards. The annual event recognizes the nation’s leading law firms, in-house legal departments, legal professionals in select categories, and noteworthy cases and deals from the past year.

In addition to this recognition, Oyen Wiggs was also named Top IP Boutique Firm for 2022-2023 by Canadian Lawyer Magazine. In the past year, Oyen Wiggs has expanded in size as well as earning recognitions from Lexpert, The Globe and Mail, and Best Lawyers.

Organized by Key Media, the Canadian Law Awards are supported by Canadian Lawyer and Canadian Lawyer InHouse and presented by Lexpert.
