Adrian Zahl has a dream: to one day write the definitive history of the
Budweiser/Budvar trademark battle, which he says has been brewing since the
Boer War. In the meantime, he's a partner with the intellectual property law
firm, Ridout & Maybee LLP, focusing on patent prosecution, opinions, and
strategic advice, primarily in the areas of biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.
Adrian is also the founding editor of International
Pharmaceutical Law and Practice, published by LexisNexis. And,
he's published numerous articles on a variety of intellectual property topics.
When he's not planning his
Budweiser tome or working on his LexisNexis book, Adrian stays busy biking and
cross country skiing in the woods around Ottawa. He even takes and active role
in organizing "Vinip," and annual event held around the world for
patent and trademark attorneys who share a love of the outdoors "and for
fine food and wine."
