Delighted Client | Private Prosecution | Alleged Trade Mark Fraud | Southwark Crown Court


As reported in the article posted to this website on January 21st 2019, Kangs Solicitors has been defending a client, a former director of a UK insulation company who, with other defendants, was alleged to have committed trade mark fraud and fraud by false representation against a company based in France.

Frances Murray of Kangs Solicitors reports upon the successful outcome of the trial.

The Trial | Kangs Private Prosecution Solicitors

  • This was an extremely complex case involving intellectual property law which resulted in extensive, technical legal argument at the commencement of the trial
  • Following the detailed cross- examination of a director of the French company, it became apparent to us that the prosecution being conducted against our client was totally ill conceived
  • Upon the closure of the presentation of the Prosecution case against our client, further detailed legal arguments were put to the court to explain why it was believed that there was ‘no case to answer’
  • The Judge agreed that the case presented by the Prosecution contained insufficient evidence for a jury to convict our client, thereby bringing the matter to a close

Our Client’s Comments | Kangs Private Prosecution Team

Our client was elated at the outcome of the trial saying:

“I’m extremely relieved that I have been found not guilty of all charges.

My solicitor Frances Murray worked tirelessly. Together with Counsel they prepared my case for trial, cross examined Prosecution witnesses and presented great technical legal arguments. Frances  was dedicated to my case and supported myself and my family throughout this tremendously stressful process. 

These proceedings had overshadowed my life for many years.  Had I been convicted I would have lost my teaching career, something I have worked incredibly hard to build. 

I am extremely grateful that I had the good fortune to instruct such a great firm as Kangs and I’m thankful to Frances Murray for helping secure the right result. Thank you”
