Trademark Litigation And Passing Off


Intellectual Property Litigation Practice group at Khurana & Khurana, Advocates and IP Attorneys recognizes that a successful IP enforcement strategy can make an important contribution to a company’s bottom line. Our attorneys help a wide variety of clients protect what is theirs and police the marketplace against infringements and unfair competitive practices. Intellectual property is recognized as one of the most important assets that can be held by a corporation or an individual. Today, the threat of intellectual property infringement increases with each passing day as infringers find it easier and faster to take advantage of the IP owner’s hard work in creating the intellectual property sought to be protected. It is well-known fact that intellectual property litigation is one of the most expensive types of litigation to defend. We take up the responsibilities from corporates for such type of IP litigation matters including Trademark Litigation matters
