Cease & Desist Letters

In the field of trademarks and copyrights, litigation generally begins with a “cease-and-desist” letter demanding that the alleged infringer immediately stop engaging in the allegedly infringing conduct. The cease-and-desist notice often provides the opportunity to settle the dispute through negotiation prior to litigation. A party that doesn’t respond to a case-and-desist letter runs the risk of being sued, at which point negotiated settlements and defense become far more expensive.

If you have received a cease-and-desist letter, or wish to send one, or if you have been sued or want to sue someone for breach of contract of any kind, or for trademark or copyright infringement, please feel free to email us with any questions or to set up a phone consultation. Our initial consultation with you is always free of charge.
