«Doubinsky & Osharova» successfully represented Toyota Motor Corporation in defending Lexus trademark in Ukraine.

On January 22, 2020, the Northern Commercial Court of Appeal made the ruling on cancellation of the Lexus trademark registration of the Turkish clothes manufacturer Mural Tekstil in Ukraine.


The bottom line of the dispute between Japan automobile company Toyota Motor Corporation and Mural Tekstil was reduced to the question of the factual use of the Lexus trademark by the Turkish company during last 5 years in Ukraine.


The court of appeal decision made it possible for Toyota Motor Corporation to register the Lexus trademark in Ukraine including for products with symbols or logo of the brand that we usually call «merch» and that to sell in official car dealerships.


Victoria Sopilnyak, partner of Doubinsky & Osharova, headed the team of lawyers working on the project.
