Doubinsky & Osharova has successfully represented the interests of Jack Daniel’s in a cassation appeal made by Strongdrink LLC to the Supreme Court of Ukraine.

According to Doubinsky & Osharova, the Supreme Court dismissed Strongdrink’s appeal of "previous courts’ decisions [refusing] to satisfy its claim to invalidate the decision of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine of October 11, 2018." 

Doubinsky & Osharova reports that, according to these decisions, “Strongdrink’s actions were recognized as unfair competition [pursuant to] Article 4 of the Law of Ukraine On Protection Against Unfair Competition. The company was obliged to stop using the labeling of strong malt alcoholic beverages Black Jack and Black Jack Silver, similar to the design of the label of alcoholic products Jack Daniel’s, the IP rights in which belong to Jack Daniel’s Properties, Inc. and which was earlier used on the market.“ In addition, Strongdrink was obliged to pay a fine of UAH 5.4 million.

Doubinsky & Osharova’s team was led by Partner Anton Koval.
