  1. It is a positive result so far, but we have received a few more letters again stating their client will no longer take action as long as we sign an return the agreement or matters will again be escalated.

I will also state that we are not prepared to sign an
  6. Hi, I have read numerous threads on the firm Palmer Biggs Legal, but still unsure what to do or how to proceed with a response as their tactics seem quiet forceful and also unreasonable with regards to costs asked for etc. I run a very small, loss making Ltd company, which specialise in aftermarket parts for BMW. The site is of our own design however as we specialise in the BMW brand, we did use a resemblance of the BMW logo as a favicon for example in our URL, an some of our replacement parts are supplied with separate BMW logos as they are required to complete the look of
