My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
They are accusing you of passing off.
Because there is a similarity in the name you are trading off their name and reputation.
It is not that you are misleading or doing anything to mislead, the issue is whether the average person in the street would confuse your company for them. If the answer is that they would confuse the tow and think you were the other mob then you are misleading the public.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
