In 1887, Charles H. Riches, an engineer and pioneering Canadian Patent Attorney, founded one of Canada's earliest firms specializing in patent and industrial design matters. Later in his career, Charles would be joined in the practice by his two sons, George H. Riches and Harold Riches.
George H. Riches would continue the firm, initially alone and then ultimately in partnership with his son and the third Riches generation, Ronald Riches, together with Dale McKenzie and Paul Herbert.
To date, Riches, McKenzie & Herbert LLP has maintained as its one focus, the protection of its clients' intellectual property in Canada and abroad.
