LAWYER, TRADEMARK AGENT
Ashley Burk (formerly Ashley Dumouchel) is a Lawyer and Trademark Agent, and provides advice in trademark and copyright clearance, protection and enforcement, IP licensing, plant breeders' rights, and domain name matters.
After practicing exclusively in the area of intellectual property for a decade with a boutique IP firm, Ashley founded Burk Law with the goal of providing intellectual property services in an easy-to-understand, bold, and unfussy way.
Ashley works with clients to harness the power of IP to advance business, grow revenues, and capture market share. Having represented a wide range of clients in the fashion, food, cannabis, insurance, high tech and biotech industries, Ashley is in a position to advise on the broader, practical impact of legal decisions on established businesses and startups. This integrated approach results in an IP strategy tailored to your company's unique goals. And, while one of the goals is to circumvent unnecessary legal battles, clients rely on Burk Law when contentious matters arise.
Ashley's litigation experience includes appearances in trademark and copyright matters before the Canadian Federal Court, Ontario Superior Court of Justice, and the Trademarks Opposition Board. She has also represented clients in domain name dispute proceedings before WIPO and CIRA.
Ashley graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.), and is called to the Ontario bar. Prior to attending law school, Ashley graduated from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Engineering in Engineering Physics (B.Eng.).
