Huationg Global sued by group of similarly-named companies

CIVIL engineering company Huationg Global and its unit Huationg Contractor have been served with a writ of summons filed in the High Court by a group of similarly-named but unrelated companies.

The suit - filed by Huationg Holdings, Huationg Inland Transport Services, Huationg (Asia) and Hua Resources - alleges that some trademarks registered under Huationg Global and its unit are invalid.

The plaintiffs are also alleging that Huationg Global and Huationg Contractor made "certain groundless threats of infringement" and defamed them, causing Huationg Holdings and Huationg Inland Transport Services to suffer damages.

Huationg Global and Huationg Contractor are disputing the claims and "intend to strenuously defend the allegations", they said in an exchange filing on Friday night. They are in the process of seeking legal advice.
