Doubinsky & Osharova has successfully represented the interests of the Toyota Motor Corporation in defending the "Lexus" trademark in Ukraine.

According to Doubinsky & Osharova, the dispute between Japan's Toyota Motor Corporation and Turkey's Mural Tekstil clothing manufacturer "was reduced to the question of the factual use of the Lexus trademark by the Turkish company during the last five years in Ukraine."

According to the firm, on January 22, 2020, Ukraine's Northern Commercial Court of Appeal ruled that Mural Tekstil's trademark registration of the Lexis mark should be canceled, allowing Toyota to register the "Lexus" trademark in Ukraine for products with symbols or logo of the brand that are often sold in official car dealerships.

The Doubinsky & Osharova team was led by Partner Victoria Sopilnyak.
