TT Group VS Ecopromservice

Ecompomservice, one of the largest recycling equipment manufacturers, approached Semenov & Pevzner in connection with a nearly 200 million roubles trade mark infringement claim it had received from a competitor. Semenov & Pevzner’s masterfully designed defence strategy helped to reduce the amount of damages to 200,000 roubles – a tenfold decrease – in the court of first instance. Appeals ensued, and in the end the court dismissed the unfair competitor’s claim in full and ordered the cancellation of the trade mark in question.
