Here are my introductory remarks to the House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade studying the TPP earlier today.
I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to appear today to provide input on the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
I am a senior partner with the law firm McCarthy Tétrault and am the former chair of its Intellectual Property Law Group.
I am an adjunct professor at Osgoode Hall Law School where I teach intellectual property law.
I am here today in my personal capacity and not representing any clients.
