"MARQUES is a vital resource for its members and it has helped my IP practice immensely. It is important to have a community who represents interests common to a variety of industries and MARQUES creates that IP community. This allows every member to keep abreast of important emerging IP issues."
Giordano Cardini, Ferrero, Luxembourg
"I have been involved with MARQUES since 2005 and always find the conferences and other events high quality and of great benefit to in-house counsel. The main conference topics and workshops are often geared towards an in-house perspective, and there is always something at the events which will stimulate discussion and insight into IP law and management."
Mark Hodgin, Mondelez, United Kingdom
"I really get a lot out of MARQUES as an in-house attorney. The sessions at the Annual Conference are usually of a very high standard and provide an excellent opportunity to refresh on key developments and catch up on emerging issues. Plus itís an excellent opportunity to fulfill CPD requirements."
Alan Minto, JT International SA, Switzerland
"As a long-standing member of MARQUES and a member of the Council, MARQUES has become my IP family. I particularly appreciate the exchange with other IP lawyers, especially in-house lawyers. Once a year we meet "among ourselves" at the Annual Conference and openly discuss special in-house topics."
Claudia Pappas, Thyssenkrupp Intellectual Property, Germany
"I am an active MARQUES member since 2005 and currently member of the Regulatory Team and the Council. In my view, there is no other IP Association that combines a great network of passionate IP experts with excellent legal content. Not only on pure IP related topics but also in many other legal areas that are key to brand owners."
Simone Pelkmans, Unilever, Netherlands
