HISTORY

The Canadian Patent Act was enacted in 1869, a period characterized by considerable technological advancement. It is against this backdrop that the patent practice of our firm was founded in 1892 under the name MARION & MARION by the Marion brothers, both of whom were engineers. Raymond A. Robic joined the firm in 1917 and quickly became its driving force. The ROBIC name found its way onto the firm’s letterhead in 1932, where it has remained ever since. Under the leadership and vision of the late Raymond A. Robic, author, teacher and inventor, the firm grew in size, expertise and reputation.

This dynamic association between the law firm and the patent agency has flourished and the two firms have now merged their activities into one fully integrated firm offering services under the trade-mark ROBIC: a single brand for a singular institution representing a long tradition of excellence.

In 1970, the law firm of LEGER ROBIC RICHARD was formed to provide specialized legal services primarily in the field of intellectual property to the ROBIC clientele and others. Over the years, the law firm has leveraged its niche status to grow and diversify its practice to include business law and commercial litigation in addition to all aspects of intellectual property.

In 2007, ROBIC celebrated its 115th year of existence. We pay homage to our rich corporate heritage and to the entrepreneurs, inventors and colleagues who have allowed us to grow into a firm of distinction, both nationally and internationally. We look to the future with enthusiasm and confidence.
