We provide advice and representation on competition law matters, primarily unfair market conduct, particularly with respect to cases of passing off, i.e. imitating a competitor’s product, infringement of good reputation and prohibited comparative advertising, before the Hungarian Competition Authority and the courts. In the absence of a registered trademark or design, litigation or proceedings aimed at obtaining interim injunctive relief against passing off may constitute a real alternative to trademark- or design infringement suits. Competition law enforcement of existing industrial property rights may also represent an effective complementary solution to taking action against the infringement.
