Ilyashev & Partners, working pro bono on behalf of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society, has persuaded a large network of medical centers in Ukraine to discontinue its illegal use of the Red Cross emblem.

According to Ilyashev & Partners, "the network used the Red Cross image in its trademark and placed the trademark on its business signs, on its website, in advertising, and business documents. This use of the emblem is a gross violation of Ukrainian legislation ... and international treaties to which Ukraine has acceded."

According to the firm, the Ilyashev & Partners Intellectual Property team "managed to persuade the infringer to stop using the Red Cross emblem and to start rebranding. The network’s obligation to stop using the Red Cross emblem was formalized in an amicable agreement approved by the economic court within a framework of a court action."

The Ilyashev & Partners team was supervised by Managing Partner Mikhail Ilyashev and included Attorney Dmytro Nikulesko and Lawyer Olena Sereda.
