Another High Court Injunction Success
26th Jun 2019
Our specialist litigation team recently secured a High Court injunction against a company for both a trade mark and passing off infringement, based on the 1994 Trades Mark Act.
Our client wanted to restrain the offending company from using both a logo and a name that would cause considerable confusion to any existing or prospective customers. As a long standing and established nationwide company with an excellent reputation, they were obviously very concerned with the damage that may be caused to their reputation.
The company involved had only recently been established and the logo and trading name was obviously designed to mirror our client’s business to gain an enhanced reputation. HH Judge Hacon granted the emergency injunction on Monday 24th June 2019. The injunction prevents any further infringement of our client’s Trademarks including its name and logo, and from passing-off. Our client will also pursue recovery of damages and costs.
The case really reflects the strengths of our litigation team, in that we had to act swiftly to support our client and in doing so collated all evidence urgently and in doing so achieved our client’s objectives.
With this type of case it is vital to act quickly and decisively to support the client and we acted with a real tenacity to ensure the desired outcome is achieved.
