What is a cease and desist letter?
A cease and desist letter is a formal written request to an individual, or company, requesting that they stop a certain activity or course of action.
They can be used in a wide variety of circumstances and are useful because they can be tailored to suit the needs and objectives of the sender.
Although cease and desist letters in themselves do not prevent the recipient from continuing with the activity, they can be used to outline what further legal action will be taken by the sender if the activity does not cease.
Also, in all litigation, the court will usually expect the parties to have (at the very least) attempted to resolve the matter amicably, before bringing court action. The court will examine the parties’ conduct, particularly when awarding costs.
Where legal action follows a cease and desist letter which the recipient has chosen to ignore, the letter is a good way for the sender to demonstrate to the court that they tried to resolve the issue without legal action and have acted reasonably.
