Infringement of rights / warning letters due to violation of intellectual property rights (IP) etc. in Germany (“Attack” and “Defense”) – IP lawyer assists

In Germany, a warning letter (German: “Abmahnung“) normally takes place before a legal dispute in the field of intellectual property rights (industrial property rights) and the IP Lawyer issuing the warning letter normally demands to submit a declaration to cease and desist with a promise of contractual penalties (C&D letter). Warning letters are issued in cases of infringement of intellectual property rights, e.g. trademark infringement, patent infringement, utility model infringement, design infringement as well as in unfair competition law (“advertising law” / “consumer protection law”), and often take place online on websites such as Amazon, Ebay, etc.

We support you both as an intellectual property right owner or competitor in taking action against infringers (i.e. in an “attack” on third parties and in the IPR enforcement and litigation), and if you have received a warning letter from a Patent Attorney, Trademark Lawyer or Certified IP Lawyer in trademark law, patent law, utility model law, design law or unfair competition law and would like to react appropriately to it (i.e. in a “defense” situation – for example against a “warning letter lawyer”).

Our IP Law Firm with German and European Patent Trademark and Design Attorney and a German Certified Intellectual Property Lawyer (specialist in industrial property law) represents clients in Germany in these matters and will provide you with a free initial assessment as well as proposals on possible further actions and information on costs.
