International network

Lisa has been of counsel to Symbus Law Group, PLLC (USA) since 2005, providing Canadian trademark services to clients in the US, Europe, Australia and beyond. Likewise, Lisa’s Canadian clients have benefited from access to the international expertise of the Symbus team.

As described by founder, Jan Bader: Symbus is a distributed law firm, meaning that our lawyers are in different locations. For over twenty years, Symbus has continuously developed effective electronic practices without sacrificing client accessibility or the close working relationships of its lawyers. Symbus’ mission is to find the lawyers that know the rules but think like entrepreneurs. We are more interested in advancing the objectives of the business in a direct and cost-effective way than in racking up billable hours. It takes a certain attitude and a lot of experience to think like this. That’s why all of the lawyers at Symbus have been practicing for at least fifteen years, and are responsibly creative in their outlook.
