Khaitan succesfully represented Emami Limited in relation to a matter involving Reckitt Benckiser which was running an advertisement for its product “Moov” which showed Emami Limited’s product Zandu Balm and the words “Jisme hai promukh balm ke mukable do guna jada active ingredients” (Moov contains twice the number of active ingredients when compared to Zandu Balm). Emami Limited challenged said advertisement and got the restraint order from the District Court and the Calcutta High Court.
Reckitt Benckiser filed a Special Leave Petition against the said order of the Calcutta High Court before the Supreme Court. We appeared on behalf of Emami before the Hon’ble Supreme Court and got the Special Leave Petition dismissed and the Petitioner (Reckit Benckiser) was finally restrained from running the advertisement.
Vanita Bhargava, Partner, Ankur Sangal, Senior Associate and Sucheta Roy, Associate represented the client on the transaction.
