Ryan De Vries

IP Lawyer

Ryan was drawn to the practice of intellectual property law by a desire to apply his technical training and fascination with technology to assist businesses in developing and protecting intellectual property assets.

Ryan's practice encompasses all areas of intellectual property law, with a focus on patent drafting and prosecution. His practice includes obtaining patents, providing patentability and freedom to practice opinions, and providing infringement and validity opinions. Ryan also assists clients in obtaining trademark registrations, opposing and expunging trademark registrations, and providing trademark infringement and validity opinions.

Prior to joining Heer Law, Ryan articled with a large intellectual property boutique firm in Toronto. While exposed to all areas of intellectual property law, Ryan primarily obtained experience in patent drafting and prosecution while working with mechanical, computer software, computer hardware, and electrical technology.

Ryan was called to the Bar of Ontario in 2017. He earned a law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School, and an undergraduate degree in physics with distinction from the University of Western Ontario. During his undergraduate studies, Ryan also gained practical experience during NSERC-funded summer placements with atmospheric and materials science lab groups.
