On July of 2017, The Legal Group – Advocates and Legal Consultant has filed a Civil Case in front of the Dubai Courts on behalf of a Dutch Company which is famous for lighting and other electronic products. A compensation for the physical and moral damages occurred to the brand owner has been requested due to the infringement of the client’s Trademarks caused by the infringer.
About three months later, the First Instance Court has issued its verdict which obliged the defendant to pay the brand owner a compensation of almost 2.1 Million Dirhams.
Within the grace period allotted by the court, the defendant has challenged the judgment and filed an Appeal.
With the excellence of TLG’s Litigation team, on January 30, 2018, the Court of Appeal rejected the plea filed by the defendant and supported the verdict of the First Instance Court. The defendant was then obliged to also cover all the expenses incurred for the case.
