History

Founded in 1892 by the Marion brothers—both engineers—the firm flourished under the direction of Raymond A. Robic, who joined the patent and trademark agency in 1917. Raymond A. Robic quickly became the firm’s driving force, and the ROBIC name found its way onto the firm’s letterhead in 1932, where it has remained ever since. Under the leadership and vision of the late Raymond A. Robic, author, teacher and inventor, the firm grew in size, expertise and reputation.

In 1970, the law firm LEGER ROBIC RICHARD was formed to provide specialized services in the field of intellectual property counselling, litigation and licensing, primarily to ROBIC clients. Over the years, the law firm leveraged its niche status to grow and diversify its practice to include business law and commercial litigation while continuing to grow its traditional practice, covering all aspects of intellectual property.

In 2023, ROBIC joined the IPH Limited group. IPH is an international intellectual property services group; a network of firms working across ten intellectual property jurisdictions, with clients in over 25 countries.
