Trade mark rights can be obtained through registration or through use and related reputation. In all cases, the right provide a guarantee of origin for the marked goods or services and maintains for its owner a market share in the relevant goods or services. Conflict between competing interests can lead to litigation conducted in either the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court or the High Court. Such litigation can centre, in particular, on questions of the existence and infringement of the trade mark right concerned, and the scope and validity of that right. Partners acting within the trade mark field at WP Thompson have developed a wealth of experience as members of the team commonly established for conducting such litigation and such experience has been supplemented by formal qualifications such as the Higher Courts Litigaton Certificate.
