Case studies: Why you should trademark your name
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.
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.
