“Amsel help to collate evidence for successful opposition at OHIM”

”Amsel & Co's evidence "was a critical component" of an opposition before The OHIM."

“In an opposition by Tulliallan Burlington Limited, as owners of the BURLINGTON ARCADE & device trade mark, successfully opposed registration of an EU designation of an International trade mark BURLINGTON of Burlington Fashion GmbH."

“The opposition succeeded by demonstrating the opponent's longstanding and extensive reputation. The facts, evidence and information submitted by Amsel & Co. assisted in showing the opponent's profile and standing”.

Diana Wardley, Partner at Forresters:

“We have used Amsel & Co many times over the years and have always been delighted with the service provided. An email setting out the background and the aim of the investigation, followed by a quick phone call to discuss budget and timescale, plus any more details, and the work is underway. If there is ever a need for clarification during the investigation Amsel & Co just call, so the delays are minimised. The reports are always on point and thorough.”

On Patents…..

A major Client writes:

“We have used Amsel & Co for many years in a variety of patent matters to locate infringers and to establish dates on which particular products were first made available to the public. They have consistently provided high levels of service, delivering excellent results to tight deadlines”.

On Designs ….

Gavin Llewellyn, at Stone King LLP:

“I have used Amsel & Co for over ten years and they have always provided an excellent service to my clients, often going to unexpected lengths to provide supporting evidence. Testing the other side’s story is really important in design infringement disputes and Amsel & Co have often managed to provide my clients with useful ammunition.”

On Domain Names….

Chris McLeod, Partner at Elkington & Fife LLP:

"I would have no hesitation in recommending Amsel & Co in relation to domain name matters. Their experience in the field gives a high prospect of success in an area in which outcomes are often far from certain. They are also aware of cost issues and have not forgotten the importance of the personal touch."
