Rob Hendry Speaks on Plant Patents at Innovation Place

This post was written prior to our January 2017 merger, under our previous firm name, MacPherson Leslie & Tyerman LLP.

MLT Saskatoon’s Rob Hendry recently spoke to a full house at Innovation Place on “Plant Patents? Canadian Systems for Protecting Plant-Related Innovations”. Discussion centered on Canadian patent and plant breeders’ rights systems as a means to assetize innovations. Rob’s presentation cut a broad swath from Supreme Court decisions on patenting higher life forms to application processes and upcoming legislative amendments.

Rob Hendry is a registered Canadian and US patent agent and Canadian trade-mark agent whose practice includes patent prosecution and strategic advising regarding IP portfolios, technology commercialization and IP-related transactions.
