Advice on domain law.
The choice of the right domain is decisive for the success of your business in the online world. If a third party has registered your sign as a domain they might infringe your right to a name or your trademark rights. Or the registration of the domain is “domain grabbing” and thus an act of unfair competition according to the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG).
In such cases we act immediately. By filing a dispute entry with the domain registration authority DENIC eG we secure your right to the domain. Thus we prevent its unauthorised transfer to third parties.
We represent your interests both in out-of-court domain disputes and in special ICANN dispute resolution proceedings (UDRP) for example at the WIPO. In court proceedings we take legal action to enforce your claims to the deletion of the domain or if applicable to the transfer of a domain. We know what is important before the special divisions in German courts. We know the judges, conciliators and arbitrators and know how they have decided in similar cases.
