Unfair Competition / Unfair Business Practices

In competition law, quick action is usually required. Companies must respond quickly to warning letters, otherwise they risk an injunction and sometimes the resulting damage is irreparable, especially when courts issue sales bans. We have many years of experience in dealing with warnings and court proceedings, especially when, as so often, warning letters are being sent "anonymously" by trade associations and competitive organizations. Above all, we aim to delevop preventive strategies to avoid such attacks, but will also take action for you, as long as it is necessary and makes sense strategically.
