Philippi Prietocarrizosa Ferrero DU & Uría has advised Nestlé de Colombia on a trademark infringement case initiated by Converse.

The case involved an advertising campaign in which Nestlé de Colombia gave away pairs of Converse shoes to the winners. In the first instance judgement, the claims were entirely dismissed, and Converse must pay Nestlé’s legal fees.

Philippi Prietocarrizosa Ferrero DU & Uría team was led by IP partner Mauricio Patiño and Dispute Resolution partner Héctor Hernández, and involved associates Camilo Suárez and Blanca Beltrán.
