ENDURA® is a world leader in technical and innovative clothing for use in cycling, both for professionals and mere mortals alike. It is consistently chosen as clothing partner by the world’s top teams and riders on road, mtb and triathlon.
However, that expertise and fame brings others, who would ride on their coattails, with brands that aim to confuse the consumer or are outright counterfeits. They also need to ensure that even if not intentional, other business do not “ride too close” in terms of their brand choice, which would have the effect of diluting the ENDURA® brand.
Because ENDURA® is a global and fast moving business, it needs IP advisors that can not only keep up, but also to lead the peleton when it comes to IP advice. Kempner & Partners were appointed by ENDURA® to look after their extensive international trade mark portfolio, which involves ensuring that we gain protection where it is needed, and enforce against counterfeiters and others who use the ENDURA® brands without permission. We have guided ENDURA® in numerous multi-jurisdictional trade mark agreements that ensure that their brand is safeguarded. In all things, we adopt a vigorous yet commercial approach to brand protection and enforcement. It’s important to us at Kempner & Partners that we ensure that we improve the IP health of our clients and make a real difference, and in the case of a world leader in the cycling world, ensure that we reduce drag and help to make the business that little bit more streamlined!
