Brand names and trade mark disputes – how charities can avoid and resolve them (24 April)

A charity’s identity is one of its key assets. Another party (whether in the charity or commercial world) adopting a name or brand that’s too close to yours, or otherwise seeking to exploit you name can have serious consequences. Supporters can be diverted, donations can be lost, reputations can be permanently damaged. Likewise, a public allegation that you have infringed someone else’s rights can be very damaging.

But there are steps you can take to protect yourself and prevent others from causing you harm. This seminar uses real-life case studies to illustrate various dispute resolution strategies that are effective but will not break the bank. We will also look at preventative measures to help ensure that conflicts do not arise in the first place.

Speakers will be Mathew Healey, BWB’s senior trade mark attorney, Mindy Jhittay and Robert Oakley from BWB’s Dispute Resolution team, who all specialise in helping charities prevent and resolve name disputes.

Who should attend?

Anyone responsible for marketing and branding, senior managers and in-house legal counsel, particularly from the voluntary and public sectors.
