Litigation Team update

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

It has been a busy end of year for the Team. Phil Kerridge successfully obtained another Injunction in the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court to protect the infringement of our client’s Trade Mark and also to stop the passing-off of our client’s business. Peter Hastings also successfully completed a Construction Adjudication with issues relating to the validity of Pay Less Notices being found in our client’s favour.

Peter also acted for a client in the Court of Appeal on an expedited hearing, and has continued to receive numerous instructions on disputes with HMRC, including the seizure of goods and advising on the correct coding for the import of goods such as dental equipment, solar panels and cameras.  In particular, Peter secured the release of goods for an American company within a very short timescale, the value of the goods being circa $850,000.
