If you are using a name in business you can only properly
protect it by registering it as a trademark. This will give you
the exclusive right to use the name and to stop others from
using it for similar business.
Our overseas client, a Greek manufacturer of confectionery products, terminated their UK agent only to find that the UK agent had registered their trademark in the UK. We negotiated a transfer of the mark back to our client for nil cost.
Overseas client stops UK distributor
We prevented a business in France from stealing and continuing to use our client’s web domain name and website copy, obtained undertakings from the infringers against future use and obtained payment of our client’s legal costs. Trademark registration of our client's name and brand was a key part of this strategy.
