Unfair Competition Law

Unfair competition law plays an increasingly important role in business life, as it is often the only means of taking action against unfair business practices and misleading advertising. Moreover, unfair competition law claims can often be enforced in addition to claims arising from industrial property rights.

Already in the run-up to new product launches and advertising campaigns, we provide advice on the conception of advertising materials and marketing measures. We also review the actions of your competitors, e.g., with regard to misleading advertising and unfair business practices.

In cases of product imitation, we also support you in effectively enforcing your rights by way of supplementary protection of achievements under competition law.

We represent you effectively in out-of-court and in-court disputes with competitors or associations, in particular in cease-and-desist proceedings, in the filing of protective letters, in preliminary injunction proceedings and in main proceedings.
