Disputes and litigation

Client Testimonial
Maybourne Hotel Group owns and manages Claridge's, The Connaught and The Berkeley — three of the most renowned hotels in London. Our brands are highly valuable assets and we have worked with UDL since 2005 on all aspects of the protection and enforcement of our trade marks. We have always found Gareth Price and the team to be approachable and they make what are complex commercial issues easy for us to understand.

Maybourne Hotel Group

Challenges and attacks on your brand can come in many different forms and require a variety of responses to ensure that they are dealt with as quickly and as efficiently as possible. In addition, trade mark cases might also involve a number of overlapping issues involving company names, domain names, Adword and keyword issues, online platform sales problems and/or patent, copyright and design infringements.

How we can help

In many cases, we’ve found that using alternative and/or complementary routes such as company name tribunals, the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy system, online retailers’ dispute systems as well as working with customs and trading standards, are all effective tools in preventing misuse of our clients’ brands.

Whether we need to apply to the court for an order to prevent infringing use, or make use of an alternative route, we’ll discuss with you what you’re trying to achieve, whether it will be possible and what it will cost.
