Cease and Desist Letters

A cease and desist letter is a formal legal document that one party sends to another in order to request they stop an action that infringes on their rights. Often used in disputes concerning intellectual property, these letters serve as a warning before formal legal proceedings. They outline the alleged misconduct and make clear the sender’s legal rights, with the intention to prevent a dispute from escalating to a courtroom.

The Importance of a Well-drafted Cease and Desist Letter

A well-drafted cease and desist letter can often resolve conflicts without the need for litigation. Not only can this save you time and money, but it can also protect your brand and reputation. A powerful letter can halt infringement promptly, help recoup lost profits, and discourage the infringing party from repeating their behavior.
