Tracking trademark violations

Is your trademark, your company identifier, or another business designation being illicitly used by a third party? Are similar trademarks or identifiers being used by the competition? Are goods or services unlawfully being offered or imported with your trademarks and identifiers? You can take action against these and other violations to your trademark and identifier rights.

What we offer

We can check the legal situation for you if you have the impression that someone is violating your trademark or identifier rights. If there is a trademark violation, we will document this and develop a strategy for you in order to stop this trademark violation as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Normally, except for cases of product/trademark piracy, in order to enforce the trademark claims, first a warning notice is issued against the person violation of the trademark in which the person violating the trademark is asked to particularly provide a cease-and-desist declaration, information, compensatory damages, and replacement of attorney’s fees. If the recipient of the warning notice fails to give sufficient declaration to cease and desist in response to the warning notice, fails to stop the claimed behavior, or if said person fails to fulfill other legitimate claims, then we will initiate the necessary steps for court proceedings for you. Claims in this case can be enforced in the form of a temporary injunction or a complaint. We can represent you before all courts in Germany. Take advantage of our many years of experience in countless trademark law disputes and court proceedings.

Scope of service

  • Examination and assessment of the technical and legal trademark position
  • Consulting with respect to the legal options and the strategic procedure
  • Out-of-court representation in the warning notice proceedings based on trademark infringement
  • Court enforcement before all relevant district and regional courts in Germany in the course of temporary injunctions or complaints
  • Enforcement of cease-and-desist claims by asserting contractual penalties or fines

Costs

We normally offer our services to you calculated according to the time spent at a suitable hourly rate or according to the Attorneys Compensation Act (RVG). We believe that cost transparency and cost reliability form the basis of successful cooperation. We will be happy to provide you with an estimate of the expected costs and the cost risk before taking the job.
