Asda IP dispute hits delay due to Pinsents' Xmas shelf-stacking duties
A High Court dispute involving Specsavers and Asda has been delayed in part due to the requirement that lawyers from Pinsent Masons - the supermarket's main adviser - are available to stack shelves at the supermarket during the Christmas period. The dispute began when Specsavers accused Asda of infringing on its trademarks with an online advertising campaign which used the slogan "Be a real spec saver at Asda". The first round closed yesterday (3 November), with the next trial date originally set for January.
