Grant Lynds

Grant’s practice covers patent and industrial design prosecution, patent and trademark litigation, as well as IP licensing, infringement and validity opinions, IP counsel for corporate transactions and patent portfolio management. Before returning to private practice in 2005, Grant spent a number of years as in-house IP licensing and litigation counsel for Nortel, a multinational telecommunications company. In that role, Grant negotiated patent licences and managed US and Canadian litigation, arbitration and mediation in a variety of subject areas, including patent and copyright infringement and litigation regarding patent indemnities.

After graduating in mechanical engineering, Grant started his career as a production engineer with Shell Canada in Calgary and also worked as an Internal Auditor during a cross-functional transfer within Shell. With this experience, Grant appreciates the technical aspects of subsurface operations in the oil and gas industry, as well as the broader corporate perspective when assessing risk associated with IP and related enforcement strategies.

As a member of the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada, Grant served as a member of Council from 2010-2012 and rejoined Council in 2015. Grant is the current Secretary of IPIC and Chair of IPIC’s Intervention Committee.  He was selected by his peers for inclusion in the 2016 to 2018 editions of The Best Lawyers in Canada in the field of Intellectual Property Law. Grant has also been listed as an expert by Who’s Who Legal and as one of the World's Leading Practitioners in Euromoney's Expert Guides – Trade Mark 2016.

Grant was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1997 and was admitted to the New York State Bar in 2001. Grant is also a registered patent and trademark agent in Canada, a patent attorney in the United States and a professional engineer in Alberta and Ontario.
