Almost every online retailer has at some point received post from a warning letter lawyer. If a competitor or the consumer protection authority notices an infringement of competition law on your website, a warning letter may be issued and an injunction may be requested. The warning costs usually go into the 3 to 4-digit range.

If the warning is fully or partially justified, we will prepare and send you a modified cease-and-desist declaration. Sign the declaration and return it to us immediately by fax or e-mail. Please do not send the original. We will only forward the cease-and-desist declaration to the other party after express agreement with you.
The lawyer in charge will discuss with you all further details, in particular the question of reimbursement of costs to the other party and further procedures.
On the one hand, it is possible for the person issuing the warning to file an injunction suit. However, this rarely happens.
Rather, an application for a preliminary injunction is obtained from the court by the person issuing the warning letter. The application will then be examined by a court. The court decides whether the injunction will be granted. If this is the case, it will be served on the defendant (online merchant). Should the online merchant file an appeal, a judgement will be made in the preliminary injunction procedure. Further legal remedies are then available. For example, the filing of a lawsuit, which can lead to principal proceedings.
