Deceptive Trade Practices and Breach of Contract

In a classic case putting a small Massachusetts packaging company against Timex Corp., the small guy comes up on top.

The client, a small packaging company located in Worcester county, worked for years designing and developing packaging for Timex watches. After hundreds of prototypes and countless years of work, the company came up with a design that Timex liked. Suddenly, despite promises of future contracts, Timex disappeared.

Sometime later, while visiting Wal-Mart, an executive from the company saw Timex watches displayed and distributed in packaging that they designed, but was now being manufactured in China.

This company sued on the basis of breach of contract, trademarks’ violations and unfair and deceptive trade practices. Not only did the company recover their damages, but they recovered their attorney’s fees as well.
