Sun Pharma

After registering a trademark, a Belarusian manufacturer began forbidding client’s imports of medicines in Belarus. For the purpose of protecting the client, we appealed to the Ministry of Antimonopoly Regulation and Trade and initiated a number of procedures and appeal petitions. Upon our application, the anti-monopoly body acknowledged competitor’s actions as unfair competition.
Further on, we represented the client in the Supreme Court in an appeal process initiated by the competitor. The court again confirmed that the competitor committed acts of unfair competition.
