Dentons represents ICT in European patent infringement litigation

Dentons has represented Italian Industrie Cartarie Tronchetti before the courts of France, Germany and Spain, securing an important victory for the company

According to the firm, the Paris Court of Appeal, the Higher Regional Court of Karlsruhe and the Barcelona Provincial Court have all issued final decisions dismissing Essity’s claims of patent infringement in regards to Industrie Cartarie Tronchetti’s (ICT) three ply toilet paper.

With Dentons’ counsel, ICT successfully demonstrated beyond a doubt that its branded and private label products are produced based on its own proprietary process, and patented under European patent 2 353 859.

The Paris decision, which is the most recent, ends a long-running patent infringement litigation with Essity and affirms ICT can continue to produce and distribute absorbent paper based on its own proprietary technology.

In Spain, after a first decision in favour of Essity in the lower court, the Barcelona Provincial Court clearly stated in a written appeal that ICT’s products – and in particular, Foxy Seda, Foxy Bouquet, certain three-ply private label products – did not infringe the Spanish part of the patent.

Dentons represented ICT in Spain with the support of Barcelona office partner Juan Ignacio Alonso (pictured).
