Marcela is focused on IP law.
She came to Canada and began working at a boutique IP law firm in Toronto. Marcela joined BLG in 2018 to continue expanding her knowledge of IP and Trademark Law, and simultaneously completed the accreditation process to have her UK law degree recognized in Canada. During her undergrad, Marcela volunteered with the Mennonite Coalition for Refugee Support, translating written statements and recorded interviews from South American refugee claimants from Spanish to English. These translations were used in support of their refugee claims in Canada. Marcela was born in Colombia and is fluent in Spanish.
In her spare time, Marcela enjoys swimming, playing tennis, and taking her dogs Tommy and Luna for long walks.
