Competition Law (Unfair Competition Act – UWG) Lawyers

The experts at CMS Germany can advise you on all competition-related issues, such as

  • running advertising and marketing campaigns
  • the design of websites and print advertising materials
  • protection against imitations under competition law.

We tackle problems before they arise

CMS provides legal advice on designing your advertising and developing new marketing concepts. We aim to work with you to find legally admissible solutions that do not restrict your creativity or business success.

Our experts have in-depth experience of competition law litigation, particularly of temporary injunctions and cross-border disputes. On request we can also examine your competitors' websites and products.

Our lawyers can also represent you in asserting your rights vis-à-vis imitators.

Your secrets are safe with us

Practically all business-related data is now stored digitally and is accessible anywhere with relative ease. There is thus an increasing risk of industrial espionage. The services offered by CMS Germany include protection of your business and operating secrets.

We can provide comprehensive advice based on our technological and legal expertise. This includes preventative measures, as well as in-court and out-of-court representation in infringement cases.
