Heading the firm’s trademarks offering, Janice Bereskin specialises in trademark portfolio management, providing counsel to big-name brands, including the Microsoft Corporation – a top filer in Canada for which she provides advice and protection, along with Jonathan BurkinshawFrançois Larose and Mark Robbins. Burkinshaw also manages the portfolio for pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson, while Larose receives praise from patrons for being “enthusiastic, very knowledgeable about the law and our areas of business, and a pleasure to work with.

His counsel is always prompt and practical.” Also providing stellar portfolio management services to their clients are Mina Chana, who manages over 250 trademarks for Johnvince Foods, and Meghan Dillon, who manages the extensive global portfolio for a multinational frozen foods company. Head of the Montreal office Brigitte Chan receives high praise: “Brigitte handles our entire trademark portfolio in Canada, including assistance with trademark clearance, prosecution, enforcement, defence, licensing and other agreement work. Brigitte is one of our closest legal partners; she has taken a lot of time over the years to really learn our business, so she is able to provide tailored and thoughtful legal advice, which is always timely, concise and practical.” On the contentious side, Scott MacKendrick’s recent work has included several successes protecting his clientele against non-use cancellation proceedings brought against them, including for clothing company Nine West Holdings. Joining the firm from McCarthy Tétrault in October 2023 is Alfred Macchione, whose decades of experience in the field have shaped him into an all-round IP guru.”
