Marek is particularly adept at coordinating transnational disputes and ensuring that the strategy adopted in Canada conforms with, and often leads, what is being done elsewhere. Marek also has an active trademarks practice, in the context of which he manages portfolios large and small in the cosmetics, life sciences, clothing, food and alcoholic beverages industries. He has a particular affinity for packaging and trade dress issues, and anything to do with so-called unconventional marks such as sounds, moving marks, smells, etc.
