Our History


Back in 2009, having previously worked together in a large national firm and combining over 40 years of experience, co-founders C. Marc Benoît and France Côté envisioned an IP firm that would offer a complete vision of the intellectual property needs of clients ― from all industries ― be they inventors, start-ups, SMEs or multinational corporations.

Having brought together a diverse team of talented patent and trademark professionals covering all areas of expertise, this vision became a reality with the creation of the first BENOÎT & CÔTÉ office in Montreal, Canada. Since then, we have supplied numerous local and international clients with a wide range of services, and worked with well-known and highly respected foreign associates.

IP Builder

A comprehensive IP portfolio can quickly
become a substantial asset to your company.

Building a strong foundation for IP protection will make it difficult for other people and companies to infringe upon protected rights. One way to secure IP protection is to cover IP with various types of IP rights. IP is typically protected through patents, industrial designs, trademarks and copyrights. Finding the best way to build and protect an IP portfolio requires imagination, in addition to a thorough knowledge of the company and its product lines.

Charting an appropriate IP strategy and IP management plan, as well as understanding how an IP portfolio, in particular, can be valuable, depends on both understanding how IP fits within the company’s business strategy and understanding how IP is used in the market environment. At BENOÎT & CÔTÉ we offer planning and lateral thinking about not only protecting your innovations but also about how to put in place an effective and cost efficient strategy tailored to your current needs.
