Supporting your ambitions
When a competitor started selling all-terrain vehicles in Europe under the "Defender" name, Claire obtained swift relief for automotive client - Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) - in trade mark infringement proceedings. Claire made use of the Shorter Trials Scheme in the High Court to bring about a cost-effective resolution of the dispute. A Europe-wide injunction was granted, and damages and costs awarded. Ready and able to enforce its intellectual property rights in relation to this iconic and much-loved vehicle, JLR was delighted with the speedy result.
