if you have not done so, you will need to hire an attorney to send a cease and desist letter to demand that the old distribution cease from distributing and advertising the brand. You will need to confirm that your distribution agreement is exclusive and the supplier terminated the agreement with the prior distributor. Hope that helps. Anything further, please reply. Otherwise, a positive rating is appreciated.
