Top Ranking UK Law Firm Pinsent Masons LLP Files UDRP to recover its .Lawyer Domain Name

Top ranking UK law firm Pinsent Masons LLP has filed a complaint under the Uniform-Domain Name-Dispute-Resolution-Policy (UDRP) for the recovery of the domain name <pinsentmasons.lawyer>.

This is one of five disputes filed against the .lawyer TLD since its release, with two being suspended under the Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS). One of the cases which involved the law firm McGuireWoods LLP has already been decided in favour of the firm and it is very likely that the present case will follow suit.

The .lawyer TLD is intended to be for official law-related websites and legal entities such as lawyers, attorneys and law firms, however it is difficult to see what these cybersquatters hope to gain from targeting this TLD.
