Cantol’s Trademark Dispute

JT&N successfully represented Cantol in the dispute.

The Peruvian locks manufacturer Cantol, achieved an important victory in winning the second instance court proceedings to invalidate disputed trademarks belonging to Cantol, which had been registered by a trademark squatter in China. This victory marks the notable success of the team’s legal strategy to invoke Article 44.1 of PRC Trademark Law, which prohibits “registration by other improper means,” in the defense of a trademark owner against the predatory practice of trademark squatting.

The JT&N team included Senior Partners Linyan Ma (Picture) and Guohua (Annie) Wu, who led the project, supported by Senior Associates Yingnan Li and Zhenggang Chen.
