On April 18, 2017 Doubinsky & Osharova successfully defended the rights of PJSC “Oschadbank” in the Commercial Court of Kyiv in the case against PJSC “Sberbank” (Ukraine) and PJSC “Sberbank” (Russia) regarding the invalidation of the defendant's trademarks, redelegation of domain name sberbank.ua and the prohibition to use the “SBERBANK” trademark.
Agency's lawyers have collected all the necessary evidence and have managed to prove to the court that the three trademarks owned by PJSC “Sberbank” (Ukraine) and the seven trademarks registered under an international procedure in the name of PJSC “Sberbank” (Russia) are confusingly similar to the “SBERBANK” trademark, which belongs to PJSC “Oschadbank”. The lawyers managed to convince the court of the groundlessness of the plenty of the defendant’s motions aimed to delay the dispute. In addition, the lawyers have proved that there is no reason to prescribe a second examination and apply a limitation of actions.
The interests of PJSC “Oschadbank” were represented by the managing partner Michael Doubinsky, the partner Yaroslav Ognevyuk, the attorney Dmytro Nikulesko and others.
