Planning the strategy for the establishment and defence of exclusive rights
With administrative proceedings (especially challenges) we can prevent a third party from registering the trademark, but not from using it.
To prevent a third party from using a trademark, if no agreement can be found, the only way to get an injunction against its use is through the courts.
It depends on the type of case.
A protective measure can be ordered in just a few weeks or months. An ordinary case takes longer, two to three years, or even a few years more, depending on the complexity of the pre-trial phase.
Before taking legal action, it’s essential to perform a thorough analysis of the situation in order to identify any harmful situations and balance the risks and benefits.
