  • Summary expungement proceedings
  • Infringement opinions
  • Trademark assignments
  • Related litigation
  • Confidentiality agreements
Liz also advises on copyright protection, domain names, regulatory, marketing and advertising matters.


In addition to her legal work, Liz is a part time faculty member at Western University, where she co-teaches a master’s level engineering course on Intellectual Property.

She is also a part time faculty member at the University of Waterloo, where she teaches a master’s level accounting course on Business Technology Law.


Many moons ago, Liz was a recipient of the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada (IPIC) Educational Foundation Prize for achieving the highest mark overall on the Canadian Trademark Agent Examination.


In her spare time, Liz enjoys dreaming about sailing, while caring for her husband and four children.
