Dispute Resolution

Sometimes disputes are unavoidable. Disputes can arise in relation to all sorts of business issues but it is essential for you to stop competitors and counterfeiters taking advantage of your business’ key brands, products and designs. Otherwise you risk only diverting trade from your business, or causing serious reputational harm. We have particular expertise in intellectual property disputes.

Intellectual property disputes

We find brand name disputes to be the most common amongst start-ups and SMEs. They arise if you are using a name that someone else claims to have a better title to, or if you find someone using confusingly similar branding to yours.

Brand name disputes usually take one of three forms:

  • Disputes in relation to registered trademarks
  • Disputes relating to unregistered trademarks
  • Cybersquatting and domain name disputes
