Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Please let me know if they are local to you and within the same industry sector?
yes same area, and same industry sector.
Ok - then you need to get a Solicitor to write and ask them to stop. They are passing od
* off *
If they refuse then you can seek a Court injunction to stop them
The test is would a consumer be confused between yours and their na,e
* name *
If the answer is yes, then this is passing off
So for this really it needs to be the same industry sector which you say it is
If they refuse you can get an injunction to get them stopped, if they break it, this is contempt of Court and they can be warned, fined or sent to prison
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Could i ask them to pay any legal fees,and should i demand they take it off google imediatly.
Sorry about the spelling!
Well you can't yet. If there is a Solicitor letter and they refuse then you can claim legal fees after this.
You can't claim fees yet because you have not given them an opportunity to remove
Ok i will email them, telling them what i shall do if they don,t remove our company name.
Sure. Can I clarify anything else for you?
No thank for your advice.
Great. Well have a good Christmas.
