Squire Patton Boggs Fights for Domain Name With Chinese Imitator

International law and lobbying firm Squire Patton Boggs hit another roadblock in its fight with a Chinese entity when a panel concluded that the current trademark holder in China maintained rights in the domain and dismissed the complaint.

World Trademark Review reports that a Chinese company appears to be practicing law using the same name and logo as that of the established firm Squire Patton Boggs, promoting its practice on a website located at squirepattonboggs.net.

“Delving deeper, we discovered the Chinese company is the same one that had previously used the brand of another international law firm, Norton Rose Fulbright (we reported on this a year prior),” writes Tim Lince. “Much of the text used on the Chinese company’s website was lifted from other law firm sites, and many of the images were either stock images or taken from movie posters, including those on the staff page.”
