Filing a Lawsuit

Lawsuit on proscription of illegal use and collection of reimbursement

A lawsuit is filed in case when the infringement was not settled in the course of pre-court dispute settlement procedure or if sending of the letter of claim was considered inappropriate. 

One of the methods of fighting counterfeit products sales is filing a lawsuit proscribing illegal use of intellectual property and collecting reimbursement for the illegal use of the intellectual property.

Before filing a lawsuit it is necessary to do the following:

  • Collect the evidence of the infringement of the rights by the assumed defendant;
  • Buy samples of products;
  • Prepare notarized protocol of the infringer’s site inspection;
  • Collect other evidence of the infringement.

The Price of Filing a Lawsuit

To start preparation work we need to have information on the intellectual property and on the infringement and the infringer.
