Trademark and competition law

Trademarks include all signs, especially words, names, logos, letters, sounds and three dimensional designs such as the form of a product, its packaging, color and color composition, that are used to differentiate products or services of one company from that of another.

Competition law means the state given framework of market competition. Apart from European laws Germany has implemented the law against limiting competition (GWB) and the law against unlawful competition (UWG) as principles for its market.

We counsel on the following issues:

  • Registering and using trademarks
  • Research on trademarks
  • Violation of trademarks
  • Sending out cease & desist letters for the violation of competition rules
  • Defense against such letters
  • Advertisement rules
