PATENTUS contested application of “Gazpromneft North-West” for review of case upon discovery of new facts

Date: 21 May 2015

After the courts of three instances issued judgements based on the facts of counterfeit ice cream (“Troubochka sakharnaya”/sugar roll) sales in favor of our client (the company “Kholod-Slavmo"), the defendant “Gazpromneft North-West” filed an application for the case review upon discovery of new facts.

The defendant attributed the fact of conclusion of amicable agreement between our client and the manufacturer of counterfeit ice cream in another case to new facts. In accordance with the amicable agreement the manufacturer “Khladokombinat No. 1” (refrigerating plant) received a consent to enter the counterfeit products into circulation before 01.05.2015.

Tatiana Sergunina , lawyer at the company Litigation Department, was able to convince the court that “Gazpromneft North-West” was not involved in this agreement and accordingly that was not at all a new fact. The Arbitration Court of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region rejected the defendant's application for the case review under discovery of new facts.

Thank You!
