PATENTUS Lawyers secured landmark court decision in favor of the client company

Date: 24 September 2015

After several hearings at the Moscow Arbitration Court Alexander Baranchikov and Tatiana Sergunina, lawyers at PATENTUS, secured a decision according to which the court found the recourse claims of our client (the products supplier) against the products manufacturer reasoned.

Before handling the client case by PATENTUS, the client was charged with the compensation sum of several million rubles in favor of a third party — the owner of a number of trademarks — for the supply of products bearing the designations being similar to the trademarks owned by the third party.

The position of our lawyers accepted by the Court, based on the fact that the compensation collected from the client as well as the previously incurred costs were his losses caused by the fact that the supplied products had been manufactured in violation of the trademark rights.

Due to the fact that in judicial practice it is not common to issue decisions in respect of cases on compensation recourse recovery for the infringement of exclusive rights, the present judgment could be of particular interest to manufacturers and suppliers of products manufactured within the Russian Federation.

Thank You!
