Kelly Gill is best known for his intellectual property litigation practice, particularly in the areas of trademarks and unfair competition. Kelly is leader of the firm’s trademarks group and former leader of the intellectual property litigation group. Kelly has appeared before all levels of court in Canada and served as counsel on two of the Supreme Court of Canada’s most important trademark and copyright decisions: Masterpiece Inc v Alavida Lifestyles Inc (2011 SCC 27) and CCH Canadian Ltd v Law Society of Upper Canada (2004 SCC 13). Kelly is the author of numerous publications, most notably Fox on Canadian Law of Trademarks and Unfair Competition (fourth edition). This two-volume text, first published in 2002 and updated each year since, is considered the leading trademark law authority in Canada. It has been cited by every level of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada in all of its trademark judgments since publication. Kelly currently sits on the IP Osgoode advisory board and is also an adjunct professor at Osgoode Hall Law School.
