Competition, Domain and On-line Law

Our attorneys provide expert advice to our clients in all questions related to intellectual property.

Competition law is at the core of work in this practice area. We provide support to our clients when seeking cease and desist orders and when asserting rights to information and claims for damages in the event of infringements of competition law. This also includes advice when handling unjustified and legitimate warning letters.

In addition, we review marketing materials in advance and advise our clients when developing (online) advertising campaigns in order to minimize the risk of unfair advertising, as well as risks under trademark law, design law or copyright law or infringements of personality rights.

SOH also offers consulting and representation in the field of domain law. We take legal action against unlawful domain names on behalf of our clients and conduct domain transfer proceedings before the WIPO as well as litigating infringement claims before the domestic courts.

The firm also has extensive experience in the field of on-line law. We provide advice and support when opening and operating on-line shops, including consideration of data protection law issues.
