He also defended Aldi against two separate allegations of trade mark infringement: one from Dualit which alleged it infringed upon the shape of one of its toasters; and another from Miles-Bramwell Executive Services which alleged that the client’s ‘SLIM FREE’ mark infringed upon the accuser’s Slimming World brand. Other key clients include Travis Perkins, Poundland and Center Parcs. Senior associate Kishan Pattni is also a key figure, with notable expertise in the media sector.
