Canadian patent and trademark agency Fetherstonhaugh & Co. on Sept. 3 announced it has changed its name to Smart & Biggar IP Agency Co.

According to the firm’s press release, the law firm Smart & Biggar and intellectual property (IP) firm Fetherstonhaugh began their collaboration almost 100 years ago. Today, the two firms serve clients from an integrated platform, sharing partners, talent and infrastructure and leveraging the latest innovations in IP practice management technology.

“This name change is a seamless transition for our clients — it is business as usual,” said Steven Garland, chair of the executive committee.

“The name Smart & Biggar is well known and highly regarded for intellectual property in Canada and globally. This name change is a natural evolution and part of our long-term strategic focus on efficiency, further streamlining our operations, and wrapping our services under one banner — Smart & Biggar,” he added.
