We are honoured to recommend the services of John Simpson for all things relating to intellectual property, especially trademark litigation. John is a highly capable, measured, and supremely competent lawyer… John did a masterful job for us and I’m sure he will for you as well.
I HIGHLY recommend John and his team for any intellectual property needs that you might have. John is talented, wicked smart, and generous with his time. They are truly a forward-thinking, forward-moving law firm.
Shift Law represented us against a large Bay Street firm in a business-critical trademark litigation suit. They outmaneuvered the lawyers on the other side at, I’m sure, a fraction of the cost. They were a pleasure to deal with and we were delighted with the result. We will trust them again in a heartbeat if we ever need to.
“Big Law dedication to excellence in technical matters and client service, with boutique-level humanness and rate structures and flexibility.”
“Exemplary service and professionalism.”
“Very service oriented and great attention to detail.”
As a growing business with a large portfolio of intellectual property, Shift Law has been critical to the successful registration and protection of our trademarks. Not only is John diligent, creative and thoughtful in his ability to advise on the best method to register marks and respond to office actions here in Canada, but he has helped us organize our international portfolio through monitoring and by connecting us with excellent agents in other territories. Given our unusually large IP portfolio for a company of our age and size, costs to administer our marks have been prohibitive in the past. John’s cost structure is transparent, reasonable and project-based, which has allowed us to effectively budget and foresee our legal expenses and to continue to build our Canadian portfolio. Further, John is a pleasure to work with!

For many months, I had tried to find an experienced, efficient and affordable intellectual property lawyer who specialized in copyright law. I was about to give up on my search when I came across John Simpson at SHIFT LAW. Not only was he a certified specialist in trademarks, but he was also one of only thirty-two certified specialists in copyright law in Ontario. I could not believe it; I had found the expert I needed!
From the moment I contacted him, I was never disappointed. It soon became obvious that he truly cared for his clients. The legal work he did was completed promptly and it went far beyond my expectations. I was especially surprised that his services were affordable. I would highly recommend – without reservation – John Simpson and his law firm to anyone looking for honest, sound and clear advice about intellectual property law.
