Trademark and Competition Law


A firm’s name, logo, trademarks and registered designs often constitute not inconsiderable corporate assets. They must be protected from inadmissible use and brand piracy. As a law firm advising business, Dr. Vahsen – Dr. Müller Rechtsanwälte offers its clients backup in this area. The spectrum of our activities extends from the national, European and world-wide registration of trademarks and designs, via the monitoring of trademarks and registered designs to ward off brand and design collisions, all the way to the commencement of opposition proceedings and the filing of cease-and-desist and compensation claims.
Alongside trademark law, competition law, too, creates further protection against the unfair practices of competitors. We support our clients in combatting unfair business practices, issue warnings of anti-competitive conduct and assert the justified claims of our clients by way of actions in court for injunctive relief and damages. In this area, the law firm has for over 20 years now been representing transport and logistics companies in all questions of competition law. Associations, too, appreciate the cooperation with Dr. Vahsen – Dr. Müller Rechtsanwälte in this legal field.
