Lawyer. Patent Agent. Trademark Agent. Mark has earned all of these credentials over his three decade (plus) practice protecting mechanical, electrical and IT inventions and trademarks around the world. While this may make him a rock star in our eyes, he is also a legitimate rock star with his charity band, Side 3.

Mark is not merely a recognized and decorated practitioner of intellectual property law; he is also heavily involved in training future IP leaders, having taught patent drafting at the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada's annual Patent Examination Tutorials for more than a decade. Mark has appeared as a witness before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Industry on multiple occasions, addressing problems in the Canadian IP system and recent major changes to Canadian trademark law, and has delivered presentations on IP to Members of Parliament and Senators, examiners at the Canadian Intellectual Property Office and law schools, as well as at conferences in Canada and abroad.

Around the office, Mark is known for his low key demeanor and high powered insights.  Which are two great attributes that go great together.
