Structure and appearance of a Waldorf Frommer warning letter
We at SOS ABMAHNUNG have already handled a large number of Waldorf Frommer warning letters, so we can also briefly tell you something about the structure of them.
First, the list printed on the right edge of a Waldorf Frommer notice of all lawyers who work for Waldorf Frommer. We often hear that the large number of lawyers seems to have a "frightening" and "overwhelming" effect on our clients. But even here we can only advise you to keep calm and to organise your legal assistance, if you feel overwhelmed, because in a free first call with us, experience shows will be sufficient to calm your initial nervousness
In addition to the list of lawyers, there is usually a 10-digit file number which starts with the year number (for example 17PPxxxxxx). The notice will also indicate contact who is also usually the lawyer working on your case.
In addition, you will find irregularities in the formulation of the letter, as the law firm endeavours in its notices to give you the facts clear and to explain them thoroughly. It can then be put in "bold" written headlines with numbering. For example, they try with headlines like "Why are we writing to you'', ''How did we find you'' and "How is the case to be assessed legally?" to justify the notice.
Last but not least, it is typical for you to be given two deadlines. A shorter deadline for the delivery of the required cease and desist undertaking and another rather longer calculated deadline for payment of the amount demanded.

Which claims does the notice contain?
As already mentioned, Waldorf Frommer's warning letters are much the same. So we can also give you an overview of the claims which Waldorf Frommer regularly makes against the recipients. These claims are summarised in the letter from the firm under the point:
"What is our client claiming?".
Under this point, the Waldorf Frommer lawyer will state that her client has a right to immediate cessation of further breaches. In addition, the client is required by law to warn you (as an infringer of a right) of the instigation of a legal action and to deliver a cease and desist demand. This procedure is intended to relieve the burden on the courts and give the parties a chance to reach an out-of-court settlement without additional court costs.
In addition, it is usually pointed out that the notice is accompanied with a template cease and desist declaration which is confined to the alleged infringement.
Compensation of the resulting damage
Here you are told that the rights holder has a claim to compensation of his incurred damage. Waldorf Frommer then elaborates and explains the extent of the claim and what it conceptually represents. Next it is stated in the following paragraph that the client of Waldorf Frommer is prepared to accept low damages. Usually in notice for a film, this will be EUR 700.00. To justify this sum, it is then pointed out that the Federal Court applies significantly higher damages, such as EUR 3,000.00.
Compensation of legal costs
In addition, in a typical Waldorf Frommer warning letter a claim is asserted for payment of the legal costs which have arisen through the involvement of the law firm. You will also be told how they are calculated and so given a precise sum. In total, for example, in the case of a normal "film notice", a total item value of EUR 1,700.00 can be calculated, resulting in legal costs of EUR 215.00.
So you can quickly be facing a claim of e.g. EUR 915.00.
Do I have to meet the claims of a Waldorf Frommer warning letter?
First, the general advice: doing nothing does not help. To save yourself unnecessary trouble and above all money, you should not ignore a Waldorf Frommer warning letter - You have to become active and do something. First of all, we advise those affected to keep calm. The short deadlines, although they are to be taken seriously, are also intended to spook you. Respond to them, but calmly and collectively. The rule still applies: Nothing is eaten as hot as it is cooked.
We advise you to sign nothing which has not been checked. The latter is especially true for the accompanying cease and desist declaration. You may not need to make such an explanation. At least, however, an experienced lawyer should check the declaration before you sign it.
In addition, we can only urgently advise you against seeking contact with Waldorf Frommer. Waldorf Frommer and their lawyers are completely familiar with the procedure of notices and could possibly elicit valuable information from you - this would complicate your defence.
If you would like a free initial consultation we would also like to explain to you in a personal conversation about the course of a Waldorf Frommer notice. We can answer all your questions in a first round free of charge, so that you can look on the Waldorf Frommer notice with serenity.
Court order, action or injunction from Waldorf Frommer?
First, we advise everyone not inadvertently to allow the deadlines in the notice to lapse, since Waldorf Frommer is one of those firms that enforce the claims of their clients - including in the context of a preliminary injunction proceedings - through the courts. If you have received a Waldorf Frommer court order, legal action or injunction this may mean that you have paid the notice too little attention. Now is absolutely the time to take action because otherwise it will only be more expensive. Also, be sure to pay attention to the deadlines set by the court, in particular, the so-called mandatory deadlines are not renewable. If they are missed, a judicial decision is issued, which in any case will trigger costs. The prospect of successfully reducing the amounts in the lawsuit is usually not bad. The more recent case law, in any case, has tended to reduce the exorbitant amounts of compensation.
