Having previously worked together 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, be they inventors, start-ups, small and medium-sized businesses or multinational corporations.
In 2009, having brought together a team of patent and trademark professionals covering all areas of expertise, this vision became a reality with the creation of the first BENOÎT & CÔTÉ office in Montréal, 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 in order to maximize IP value.

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 Benoit & Cote 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.
Canada’s strong economic status and commitment to innovation provides an ideal atmosphere and offers fertile ground for your IP assets. The multilingual team at BENOÎT & CÔTÉ can serve you in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Arabic and Romanian.Let’s talk
