The flip side to enforcement is being on the receiving end of a challenge by a third party. Your use and/or registration of a trade mark could face objection from a competitor through opposition, invalidity, revocation, passing-off or infringement proceedings.
How we can help
Helping our clients avoid or manage contentious challenges by third parties is a core part of what we do. If you’re challenged as a result of the use or registration of a brand, we can advise on the best way to respond. We’ll explore and advise on all possible counterclaims, defences, negotiations and mediation solutions, including co-existence agreements, licence arrangements, and even the acquisitions of prior rights to improve your position. However, we always have an eye on the most cost-effective solution for what the business wants to achieve.
