Mark Anderson QC and Steven Reed representing UK Gymnastics Limited

Thu, 25 Mar 2021

Mark Anderson QC and Steven Reed appeared in the Court of Appeal on 16 March, representing UK Gymnastics Limited in its appeal against an injunction restraining it from infringing British Gymnastics’ trademarks and from passing off by calling itself a National Governing Body for the sport of gymnastics.

The Court of Appeal confirmed the trademark injunction but the appeal succeeded in that the passing off injunction was modified to permit the defendant to continue to style itself as a National Governing Body for the sport. Lord Justice Arnold delivered the sole judgment, with which Lords Justices Lewison and Bean agreed.
