Intellectual Property Protection

Intellectual Property Protection

VanTek Intellectual Property LLP was founded out of our desire to provide innovators with cost-effective representation.  Our mission is to maximize the value of our clients’ intellectual property through highly professional, timely, and personal service at an affordable cost.

Welcome to VanTek Intellectual Property LLP

Whether drafting a new patent for a Canadian inventor, advising on a trademark application, or handling a national phase entry in Canada, we are committed to best-in-class service: quick responses, the strictest attention to detail, and the broadest protection possible.

 The protection and promotion of innovative ideas also involves how they are known to the public, regulatory hurdles, production, and distribution.  While we are currently focused on providing the full range of intellectual property prosecution services, we have a wide range of contacts providing other business services and on whom we can call or to whom we can refer our clients. 

 We aim to be the vanguard of scientific and technical innovation, leading the way to help our clients protect and develop their ideas, and compete successfully in the global marketplace of products and ideas. 

 Contact us for our rate sheet, a quote, or a consultation by phone or in person—anywhere in the Ottawa area or in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

 We are a national firm now, and one of Canada’s fastest-growing IP boutiques.  Take a closer look at our growing Team.  


Our clients include solo entrepreneurs, start-up companies, large corporations, universities, and other large research institutions, as well as overseas companies and IP agencies and firms seeking IP protection in Canada.

Your Team

2020 saw us expand again, adding another partner to round out our service team: engineer and patent agent Shin Hung. To celebrate and mark our new capacity in hi-tech, we changed our name from Vanguard to VanTek.
