Canada

In early 2019, Canada will at long last be implementing the Madrid Protocol. In line with this, the new Trademark Act, which received Royal Assent back in 2014, will shortly be coming into force and will introduce numerous notable changes to the Canadian trademark system. These include the removal of use as a registration requirement and the implementation of the Nice Agreement under which the listing of goods and services must follow the Nice classification codes. Another major talking point in Canadian trademark circles is the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement and the effect it will have on efforts to stem counterfeiting; the agreement gives the Canadian Border Services Agency the right, which it did not have before, to initiate border measures against fake goods in transit, which is a very positive development given that Canada is a significant point of entry into North America for counterfeits from China; on the other hand, the agreement has not moved the needle when it comes to statutory trademark damages.

Firms

Firms: anti-counterfeiting

Baker McKenzie LLP 

Baker McKenzie’s global footprint makes it an ideal choice for companies with international business, not just in intellectual property but for all wider commercial issues. The Toronto contingent ascends to the silver tier this year on the back of overwhelmingly positive client feedback. Currently spearheading the IP litigation practice, “Jim Holloway is always a go-to for Canadian legal issues, he is an instrumental asset in important disputes”. He is joined by the two captains of the prosecution group, Christopher Aide and Stephanie Vaccari. “Christopher takes his time to learn his clients’ businesses inside and out. He is passionate about intellectual property and makes a point to know everything about the product, and that passion and commitment cascades through his team, who share the same attributes. He provides a range of potential courses of action which are commercially savvy, allowing clients to make the best decision for the business. All the while he delivers his service with a human, personal touch and a wonderful blend of intellectualism and humour.” “When working with Stephanie, clients get the quick service and personal attention of an IP boutique, while also having the backing of a world-class firm with a deep bench. She is the best bargain for those looking for a market-leading service at an affordable rate, and a great pleasure to work with.” Vaccari sits at the head of the luxury and fashion division. In the past year she has been kept busy by numerous high-end transactions, including assisting Unilever in its acquisition of Canadian entities.

Bennett Jones LLP

“Bennett Jones has a great reputation in Canada. The firm continues to impress for its expertise and strong working relationships.” The IP team works hand in hand with other departments to deliver winning results in multi-disciplinary disputes. Canopy Growth Corporation, Ferrero, Kanye West (Westbrands), Prada and Snoop Dog (Calvin Broadus) are among the clients that the team added to its roster this year. Leading the charge for Ferrero are Jeilah Chan and Dominique Hussey, who handle the company’s Canadian trademark portfolio and have successfully defended the brand in a string of trademark oppositions. The dynamic duo oversee the Toronto office. “Both Dominique and Jeilah are bright, experienced and responsive. They always give sound advice that is to the point.” “Jeilah is very valuable, she always takes maximum care to meet her clients’ needs.” On guard to lead brands through all stages of protection is Martin Kratz, a trademark extraordinaire. “He’s a hound dog, just exemplary, a leader in the field, he is wellknown and highly regarded in the business and legal communities due to his expertise, knowledge and professionalism. He is up to date with legal know-how, and gives advice which is comprehensive and creative, while always accounting for business implications.” “Kratz is a pleasure to work with; he is courteous, timely and willing to share knowledge along with advice.”

The side has participated in government consultations on Canada’s ascension to the Madrid system since 2013 and is now busy providing guidance to clients on what the changes will mean for them. Christine Pallotta is perfectly poised to handle the predicted increase in opposition proceedings. “She is a switched-on adviser, who thinks strategically, but also aggressively. Overall, she has proved to be a superb negotiator not afraid to take risks.” Joining Pallotta in the Toronto office is Justine Wiebe. “The pinnacle of trademark service and knowledge, she is simply outstanding. She knows how to boil down complex issues so they can be easily understood. Justine never fails to go above and beyond.” Further strength to the prosecution practice is provided by Mary Jane Lemenchick, LuAnne Morrow and Geneviève Bergeron. Lemenchick concocts realistic solutions for clients, drawing on a holistic approach overlaid with broad sector expertise. “LuAnne is a skilled professional who is an IP all-rounder.
