UK Trade mark protection for "Mr Loophole"

The BBC reports that celebrity solicitor Nick Freeman (left) has trade marked his nickname "Mr Loophole" to stop other lawyers from using it. The solicitor is well-known for his success in motoring cases and specialises in exploiting legal loopholes to clear celebrity clients of driving charges. The BBC quotes him as saying:

"The media coined the term for me and while some might not know the name Nick Freeman, they usually have heard the name Mr Loophole ... In order to stop others in the legal profession using this name I have succeeded in my bid to protect the name ... I have received my certificate of registration so if anyone attempts to use the name, legal action can be taken."

If you are interested in reviewing the specification, please click here: UK Trade Mark No. 2459061 MR LOOPHOLE covering classes 09, 16, 41 and 45 . Owned by the same proprietor and covering identical classes: UK Trade Mark No. 2459072 NICK FREEMAN.
