We serve as co-counsel with Locke Lorde for Quebec-based BRP—a world leader in the design, manufacturing, distribution and marketing of motorized recreational vehicles and powersports engines distributed in over 100 countries by more than 4,200 dealers and distributors—in two dueling patent cases.

In one case, we represent BRP in enforcing its family of patents against rival Arctic Cat, based on Arctic Cat’s introduction of a new line of snowmobiles employing the innovative rider position and frame assembly patents issued to BRP’s inventors.

In the second, we are defending a patent infringement case brought by Arctic Cat after BRP had started its own infringement litigation, in which Arctic Cat alleges infringement of patents related to controllers for ignition timing in engines. BRP is defending against Arctic Cat’s claims on all grounds, including non-infringement and invalidity.
