YOUR TRADE FAIR PRESENTATION IN GERMANY
Are you prepared for legal challenges?
Be prepared for possible legal challenges.
A trade fair gives you the opportunity to present your own goods and services, explore the sector’s new trends and establish
new contacts. However, be aware that exhibitors are frequently confronted with legal challenges, such as
- infringement of patents, trademarks, copyrights, registered designs, utility models and other industrial property rights (“IP rights”);
- misleading advertising or false statements by competitors doing harm to your business;
- violation of confidentiality obligations and restraints on competition;
- preliminary injunctions or seizure proceedings.
Dealing with such problems will have a negative impact on your success at the trade fair.
In such a case, it is often crucial to react immediately and accurately on these complex matters in order to take the
necessary legal steps without delay.
Avoid wrong decisions and do not hesitate to contact us in order to maximise your success at the trade fair.
A court decision to your business’ advantage will be of little help as it is usually made months or even years later.
