David DurandPresident



As a lawyer and trademark agent, I use my science and law background to advise clients in various corporate, technology and IP related matters. I have negotiated, drafted and review of numerous types of contracts, including SaaS agreements, and dealt with data privacy issues. I have also worked in various prominent projects including the rollout of the EV charging station network across Canada. In addition to developing a new IP tool, MVIP™, I am a part-time lecturer at the faculty of law of the University of Ottawa and have authored a book chapter on the role of investment and IP, which is set to be published in Springer-Nature by the end of 2022.
As newly appointed President of FORPIQ, I look forward to working with my fellow Board members in developing our outreach with the Canadian innovation ecosystem, having engaging conversations therewith so as to share experiences, improve IP awareness and implement IP into their business strategies.
