In a hearing on 2 March 2010, before His Honour Mr Justice Briggs in the High Court in London, Hotel Cipriani (part of Orient-Express Hotels Ltd) was awarded £1,571,091 against Cipriani (Grosvenor Street) Ltd, the London restaurant and a further £6,068,736 against Cipriani International SA of Luxembourg, both by way of an account of profits made from their acts of infringement of the trade mark “Cipriani” and of passing off.

At a further hearing Mr Justice Briggs made an order to freeze the assets of Cipriani International SA on a worldwide basis. Cipriani SA is the parent company of the restaurant owning companies of the Cipriani family

This follows Hotel Cipriani’s successful defence of an appeal by the Cipriani family against the decision of His Honour Mr Justice Arnold in the High Court in London in December 2008 in which he found for Hotel Cipriani in an action for trade mark infringement and passing off in respect of the mark ‘‘Cipriani’’ for restaurant services, against the operators of the restaurant ‘Cipriani’ London. The Court of Appeal refused leave to appeal to the Supreme Court.

Cipriani (Grosvenor Street) Ltd announced on 2 March 2010 that it had filed for administration in the UK.
