We were the first to commence litigation for CITI Bank and established the practice in Nigeria of being able to sue the Corporate Affairs Commission(CAC) in a case where two names are confusingly similar. CAC had inadvertently given a company such similar name previously approved for another company which was first in time. Other Law firms had told CITI Bank this was impossible but we got judgement in favour of CITI Bank.

In the above case our firm was retained by the Plaintiffs to institute an action at the Federal High Court compelling the 1st Defendant to remove the names of the other 5 Defendants from the Register of Companies as their names as constituted are in conflict with the existing trademark of the Plaintiffs “CITICORP”.

Upon service of the Originating Summons on the defendants, parties filed papers in opposition and the Court, upon hearing the Originating summons, granted all our prayers in its entirety and the 2nd to 6th Defendants were Ordered to changed their names and the 1st Defendant was ordered by the Court to remove the offending names from the Register of Companies.
