Based in Smart & Biggar’s Montreal office, Jean-Sebastien focuses on intellectual property litigation in the areas of trademarks, patents and copyright.

He was awarded a First Class grade from the University of Cambridge for his Master of Law thesis, which focused on the notion of trademark use and addressed the issue of invisible use of trademarks in meta tags and keyword advertising, as well as the subliminal use of trademarks in new marketing techniques.
