Fine & Country Ltd v Okotoks Ltd [2012] EWHC 2230 (Ch)

Case Summary  |  Judgment  |  14 March 2012

 

This was a three week trial concerning rival estate agents.  Mark Platts-Mills QC led Jessie Bowhill representing the Defendants in this passing off and trade mark infringement claim. The Defendants were found to have passed off their estate agency business as that of the Claimant and infringed the Claimants device mark comprising the words FINE & COUNTRY by the use of their mark FINE in a similar script and with other embellishments which were found to be similar to those of the Claimant. An application for permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal is awaiting a decision.
