More Information:

Sana Halwani, a key partner at Lenczner Slaght, is distinguished in the field of litigation, particularly recognized for her prowess in intellectual property (IP) law. Her legal, technical, and advocacy capabilities have earned her high respect within judicial circles, with her skill set effectively representing the firm's Intellectual Property group. Sana's extensive background spans various sectors such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, information technology, telecommunications, gaming, and the energy industry. Her client roster is as varied as her expertise, ranging from software and drug companies to media entities, covering patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret disputes.

Her legal journey has seen her advocate for clients across the judicial hierarchy in Ontario and Federal courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada, offering nuanced patent and regulatory counsel. Sana's involvement extends beyond the Canadian border, having participated in patent actions in the U.S. and collaborated with international teams on significant cross-border litigation.

Sana's commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) shines through her leadership of the firm's EDI Committee and as the co-founder of ReferToHer™, a program designed to ensure women remain prominent in referral processes. Her influence also extends into innovation, as Chair of the Innovation Hive™, directing the firm's forward-thinking initiatives.

A sought-after speaker on IP, advocacy, and diversity, Sana represents the IP Law sector on the Federal Courts Rules Committee and the Federal Court IP Users Committee. Her voluntary contributions include roles with the Writer’s Trust of Canada, the University of Toronto Alumni Association, and the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada (IPIC), where she helped establish its Women in IP Networking Group.

Before her private practice, Sana served as a clerk for Justice Rosalie Abella at the Supreme Court of Canada. Fluent in French, she is a certified patent and trademark agent.

Her academic credentials are equally impressive, holding a JD from the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, where she was honored with the Dean's Key for her outstanding achievements, and a Master of Arts in Biotechnological Law and Ethics from the University of Sheffield, receiving a Special Commendation for her exceptional performance. Sana completed her undergraduate studies in Biochemistry at Queen's University, graduating with a First Class Degree.

Her practice areas span Intellectual Property, Commercial Litigation, Public Law, Appeals, and Injunctions, with her bar admissions in Ontario since 2005.
