Roch Ripley is a partner in the Vancouver office of Gowling WLG and the head of the Vancouver office’s intellectual property department. Roch delivers strategic advice on how to economically procure and enforce intellectual property rights, with a view to helping smaller clients position themselves for investment or acquisition and to helping larger clients establish portfolios that can be asserted offensively or defensively and leveraged in licensing programs. He has particular experience helping clients in the information technology, energy, and clean technology sectors. Roch is a Registered Patent Agent in the US and Canada and combines his legal background with his degree in electronics engineering to prepare and prosecute patent applications for his clients in key markets such as the US, Europe, Asia, and Canada. He also regularly leads the intellectual property–related due diligence and negotiations for transactions where intellectual property is an important aspect. A significant portion of Roch's practice is also directed at helping foreign attorneys file Canadian patent applications. Roch has been recognized in The Best Lawyers in Canada and was named an “Acritas Star” in 2018 and 2019.
