Notice regarding 'LG Energy Solutions'

It has come to our attention that a company trading as 'LG Energy Solutions' has been using LG branding and marketing material without with the approval of LG Electronics Australia.

As a result, LG Electronics Australia promptly obtained orders from the Federal Circuit Court preventing 'LG Energy Solutions' from using LG branding and marketing materials. The Federal Circuit Court also ordered that LG Energy Solutions clearly inform consumers that they are in no way associated with LG Electronics Australia. LG Energy Solutions failed to comply with the court orders.

Unrelated to the court action, we have been notified that 'LG Energy Solutions' has gone into liquidation. If you have any queries regarding the liquidation or LG Energy Solutions more generally, please contact the liquidator, Mr Steven Kugel of The Insolvency Experts on (02) 8378 3777.
