Litigation[edit]

EFG Bank European Financial Group SA v. Euro OJSC Ltd[edit]

On 24 October 2008, EFG Bank European Financial Group SA applied to the Company Names Tribunal under s.69(1)(b) Companies Act 2006 for a change of name of Eurobank OJSC Ltd, which had been registered at Companies House since 11 February 2008.

The application went un-defended by the respondent and the adjudicator ordered on 22 January 2009 that Eurobank OJSC Ltd must change their name within one month. Additionally the respondent was ordered not to cause or permit any steps to be taken to register another company with an offending name which could interfere, due to its similarity, with the goodwill of the applicant.

Eurobank OJSC Ltd was also ordered to pay EFG Bank European Financial Group S.A. costs.[1]
