Price Quotations in Germany: Cease and Desist Letters – Pre-Litigation Representation of Online Companies out of court
It is a general requirement according to German law that claimants shall inform the infringing party in advance about their legal violations and seek a solution of the case out of court. Such information is regularly given to the opposite party with a cease and desist letter. If your internet company rushes with a price quotation issue to court without having tried to solve the price quotation dispute out of court, the German court may very well impose payment of the entire court fees plus the attorney fees of all parties on your company, even if your company later entirely wins the price quotation lawsuit.
ZELLER & SEYFERT will demand from your infringing competitor that he ceases and desists from not properly quoting prices on his website in violation of the German Regulation on Price Quotations. In addition, our attorneys will demand damages and other forms of money compensation from your competitor. It is then up to your competitor, if he wants to cooperate with our attorneys. If not, our attorneys will promptly enforce the rights and claims of your company before the responsible German commercial court.
