Bereskin & Parr LLP has entered a strategic partnership with Angel Investors Ontario to support angel investing in the province.

The partnership is part of the two organizations’ commitment to both startup companies and angel investing to drive the economy across the province of Ontario, build prosperity and strengthen communities, they said in a statement. They will also launch co-branded events focused on hands-on education around intellectual property specific to the needs of angel investors and due diligence.

Bereskin & Parr will produce intellectual property-related education materials and programming that will be made available through various Angel Investors Ontario channels. This will provide AIO members with access to the law firm’s resources and give them knowledge and insight to support IP goals for entrepreneurs and angel investors.

“Bereskin & Parr is dedicated to helping Canadian entrepreneurs protect and monetize their innovations and business,” said Bhupinder Randhawa, head of the firm’s engineering and technology law practice group. “We focus on building high-quality IP assets that can readily be licensed, sold and enforced as opportunities arise, in Canada, the United States and around the world. We are pleased to join forces with AIO and their member angel investor groups. We look forward to supporting Ontario's angel investment community to help them identify and invest in valuable IP assets and strategies.”
