BENOÎT & CÔTÉ OFFERS PERSONALIZED AND LEADING-EDGE SERVICES OF A BOUTIQUE FIRM WITH THE RESPECTED AND TRUSTED SECURITY OF A TOP TIER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY FIRM.
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.Show more +
