Arias, Fábrega & Fábrega represented AkzoNobel, the Dutch multinational company which creates paints and performance coatings, in an opposition filed against the trademark registration of Koral in Panama.

The firm successfully filed an opposition suit and later response to the appeal in the second and final instance, in the name of its client Akzo Nobel Ltda., to oppose the registration of the Trademark Applications for Sur Koral and Sur Koral Magnum in the name of Sur Quimica International S.A.

The Panamanian Judicial Court resolved in favor of the client, and the Higher Superior Court confirmed the verdict, denying the registration of the mentioned Trademark Applications.
