Velchev & Co has represented Philip Morris in the Supreme Administrative Court of Bulgaria in a dispute with Georgia's Standard Tobacco Incorporated regarding the registration of the Parliament trademark.

According to Velchev & Co., the Court upheld the decision made by the lower Administrative Court of Sofia and concluded that there were grounds to conclude that similarities between the Philip Morris’ Parliament trademark and Standard Tobacco’s Premium trademark could cause confusion for consumers.

The Supreme Administrative Court’s ruling is final.

The Velchev & Co team was led by Partner Velislav Dramov.
