Our Story

Peter Kirby founded our firm in 1959 with the vision of providing the highest quality, boutique-style intellectual property protection services, tailored to clients around the world. As the firm grew — becoming Kirby Eades Gale Baker — with expertise in sectors ranging from nanotechnology and pharmaceuticals to complex mechanical systems, software, financial trading applications and telecommunications, we have earned a reputation for precision, responsive client service and exceptional results.

Our team continues that tradition today.  Kirby IP Canada remains focused on intellectual property protection, providing expert advice on IP portfolio management, filing strategies, patentability and infringement matters, as well as preparation, filing and prosecution of patent, trademark and industrial design applications in Canada and around the world.

Located in Canada’s national capital of Ottawa, Ontario, our offices are just across the Ottawa River from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) where all IP protection applications are processed in Canada. That makes it easy for us to meet with CIPO representatives, conduct searches and hold interviews with examiners on our clients’ behalf.
