Ignore cease and desist letters at your peril, was the lesson imparted by a recent default judgment won by Maucher Jenkins for a major client.
Maucher Jenkins’ London litigation team recently secured the order for default judgment in an IPEC claim for trade mark infringement and passing off for a well-known financial services company. The defendant was ordered to stop infringing and to pay all of our client’s costs in bringing the claim.
The defendant had ignored pre-action correspondence and failed to respond to the claim. The swift and cost-effective outcome is a positive example of how Maucher Jenkins can assist in enforcing intellectual property rights against stubborn infringers who fail to respond or properly engage with cease and desist letters.
