Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : For now please let me know whether this is a partnership or limited company?
JACUSTOMER-z8iq2dhp- : It's a limited company. But the trade mark is not in the company name. It's in our individual name
Alex Watts : Is there any agreement between you re the use of the mark?
JACUSTOMER-z8iq2dhp- : No, there is no agreement, we trade marked the brand as joint owners
Alex Watts :

Ok - if you both own it then you both can use it.

Alex Watts :

So no, you cant be stopped - you own half!

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

JACUSTOMER-z8iq2dhp- :

I wish to continue selling the products under the trademark on my own. Am i ok to do this. To Clarify we manufacture sauces under the trademark of Mum's by Niru Parmar. Sorry to be a pain but just want to get this right.
