Who is Paul Lomic?
I am a lawyer at Lomic Law an IP firm I founded about nine years ago. As an intellectual property lawyer, my practice is focused on resolving intellectual property and commercial disputes, including matters involving trademarks, copyright, patents, social media/internet, and confidential information. As a Registered Trademark Agent, I conduct opposition and cancellation proceedings and assist clients with managing and protecting their Canadian and global trademark portfolios.
Why did you choose IT/IP and what would you tell a young lawyer entering the IT/IP field?
The innovative environment of IT/IP is exciting, and it allows me to build on my science background.
The best advice I always give to young or new lawyers is to actively participate in organizations such as the OBA. The OBA was a critical component to starting my own practice and for amazing career experiences through my career.
