Lawyers created a dual strategy to stop the unauthorised resale of Hyundai vehicles in Europe. It applied the European Court of Justice’s Metro-Cartier decision to limit manufacturers’ warranties to vehicles sold by an authorised dealer. Lawyers also pursued trademark infringement cases to stop the distribution of cars from outside the region.
To be awarded one of the most prestigious awards in the legal industry is an exceptional honour. This prestigious award is hugely competitive, and I am very proud of the recognition for our innovative work. To create innovation you need to have motivation, trust and a lot of fun. Thanks to the whole team for its great passion.
We are proud to have this outstanding legal team that contributes significantly to our innovative business strategy at Hyundai Motor Europe.
