Assisting Birkenstock in claims for trade mark infringement and passing off
Partner Lau Kok Keng from Rajah & Tann Singapore is assisting Birkenstock GmbH & Co. KG and Birkenstock Sales GmbH in respect of claims for trade mark infringement and passing off against their former distributors in Singapore and Malaysia. Their former distributors had continued to sell Birkenstock and products from other brands using country-level domain registrations incorporating the Birkenstock trademark. Parties are currently negotiating an amicable resolution to the matter.
