BianchiSchwald wins landmark trademark case before the Swiss Federal Administrative Court

On behalf of its client Hamilton Medical AG, BianchiSchwald, represented by Christoph Gasser, has succeeded in convincing the Swiss Federal Administrative Court that the client’s word trademark “HAMILTON” is registrable, in particular, for medical devices. Our appeal filed against the negative decision issued by the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property has been approved. The latter is still entitled to bring the case to the Swiss Federal Supreme Court.
The decision was also summarized in the «Handelszeitung» on June 6, 2018 (please see: https://www.handelszeitung.ch/stichworte/m/markenrecht).
