Competition Law

Competition law serves to protect competitors, consumers and other market participants. Unfair commercial acts of all kinds are prohibited, especially in advertising.

Among other things, misleading information, unobjective advertising comparisons, inaccurate claims to a unique or top position, but also missing information in the imprint of a homepage in connection with the provisions of the Telemedia Act (TMG) are prohibited.

The unfair imitation of protected work results, for example the reproduction of products, can also be sanctioned under the provisions of the Unfair Competition Act if no patent, trademark or design protection exists.

We regularly check advertising campaigns, homepages and other publications for inadmissible claims and possible infringements of industrial property rights. The creation and control of general terms and conditions also falls within this area of competence.
