    Internationalising IP and managing mergers: In conversation with Robert MacDonald - Part 1

    How has the intellectual property landscape changed over the last 40 years and how has this impacted IP case law globally? And, what was it really like acting on largescale cases in Soviet Russia?
    We conclude Season 1 of our 'In Conversation with Gowling WLG' podcast series with a special two-part episode, as global intellectual property partner Gordon Harris speaks to Robert MacDonald – a veritable legend of the IP world, a former colleague and long-time friend.
    We delve deep into IP, hearing Robert's high points and challenges, anecdotes, and advice garnered from an illustrious international career spanning four decades.
    In Part 1, we explore:
    Robert's entry into IP, earning his stripes in the profession, and some of his most important and challenging moments over a memorable 40-year career to date; his time spent in Russia representing Canadian companies and joint ventures with the USSR, and doing business during the Perestroika and Glasnost era; Robert's role as a strategic adviser to numerous multinationals, acting in a number of landmark trademark cases, including Adidas AG v. Globe International (2015); Hortilux Schreder v. Iwasaki Electric (2013); Apotex v. Canada (2010); Jose Cuervo v. Bacardi (2010); and Merrill Lynch v. Bank of Montreal (1996); reflections on career moments in the courts, and times where Robert may have done things differently; and leading the Canadian arm of Gowling WLG's IP team as Head of Sector and growing the firm's global offering.

    • Martin Darbyshire, CEO and co-founder of tangerine and trustee of the Design Council, joined our panel once again, this time with Eleanor Humphrey, CEO and co-founder of TOPL, to talk about the story behind bringing TOPL's innovative non-spill cup to market and the measures taken to protect the designs.
    • Simone Brewster, an artist and furniture and jewellery designer with an architecture background, has been exhibited at the British Embassy during the London 2012 Olympic Games, but has also had issues with people taking her designs without permission;
    • Phoebe Gormley, founder of Gormley & Gamble, the first ever woman's' tailor on Savile Row talked about her experience of establishing her modern, design-led business in a traditional and often old-fashioned sector;
