Kondrat & Partners has successfully represented the interests of the Warsaw School of Economics in a ten-year long dispute with the International Olympic Committee.

According to Kondrat & Partners, the dispute arose in 2010 when the Foundation of the Promotion and Accreditation of Economic Education, which was founded by five Polish universities, started organizing the Polish “Entrepreneurship Olympiad” and the “High School Civics Olympics” for students and high school pupils. The International Olympic Committee opposed the registration of the “Entrepreneurship Olympiad” trademark, claiming that the word “olympiad” cannot function in other entities’ trademarks.

On January 17, 2020 the Supreme Administrative Court ruled in favor of the Foundation and the Warsaw School of Economics and stated that the word “olympiad” in the competition “Entrepreneurship Olympiad” can coexist with the trademarks owned by the International Olympic Committee.

The Kondrat & Partners team consisted of Attorneys Mariusz Kondrat and Andrzej Przytula.
