Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards 2023 CANADA 61 ABOUT PATENT AXIS, INC T: +1-416-556-2999 | E: | INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW FIRM OF THE YEAR While idiomatic expressions tell us to consider both sides of a story, decision points in the patent process are rarely limited to dual choices.

Whenever feasible, multi-faceted choices inherent in patent prosecution are distilled within the context of client objectives to represent available choices in a practical format of risks and opportunities to allow clients to select choices best suited to their objectives.
