Which? takes on Davenport-Lyons for "excessive bullying"

Intellectual Property

davenport-lyons.jpgLadies and gentlemen, get your pom poms ready. The mighty Which? consumer rights organisation is taking on offensively agressive lawyers Davenport-Lyons, who we’ve covered extensively in the past.

Which? has filed a complaint with the Solicitors Regulatory Authority claiming that “excessive bullying” has taken place. It follows Atari pulling out of the lawsuit campaign due to bad press. Davenport-Lyons’ tactic is to send out angry, agressive letters, demanding quick payment or a lawsuit is threatened. With any luck, the involvement of a group like Which?’s will hopefully end the campaign.
