Stockwoods lawyers successfully resist motion and obtain over $200,000 in costs orders

In July 2012, Stockwoods successfully represented Direct Energy Marketing Ltd. in an Application for a declaration that a brochure circulated by a competitor was in breach of the Trade-marks Act and the Competition Act.  The competitor moved to set aside that decision and also moved for an order permitting its expert to inspect Direct Energy’s computer system.  Stockwoods’ lawyers Paul Le Vay and Justin Safayeni were successful in persuading the Superior Court of Justice to dismiss both motion (see reasons here and here).   Direct Energy was awarded costs of over $49,000 in costs on the original application as well as total costs of $190,000 for the two motions.  The costs reasons may be found here and here
