What Is A Cease & Desist Letter?
A cease and desist letter is a letter that asks someone to stop doing something. They can be sent to a person or a company.

Why Send a Cease and Desist letter?
Legal action to have someone stop doing something harmful to you or your company often includes a Notice of Motion where the court is asked to grant an order that orders the person to stop those harmful actions. Legal action often also includes a request of the court to grant an order for specific damages (monetary claims). The legal process is often very expensive and you are better served making an official request for the actions to stop. A cease and desist letter is that first request.
How Effective Are Cease and Desist letters?
Cease and desist letters vary in terms of their effectiveness. There are a number of factors that will play a role in how effective these letters are. The most effective cease and desist letter is sent by a lawyer. The reason for this is that it demonstrates to the other party that you are serious. The fact that you consulted with and retained a lawyer is significant. Often people think that it will not go further than a letter. This is because the cost and time for litigation can be high. But this is true for both sides and should be a good catalyst for settling issues outside of court. While a cease and desist letter does not always work, it is a step that has to be taken anyway. You can decide at any point that you do not want to take the matter further.
