LOYER & ABELLO launches the 1st application dedicated to infringement seizures and bailiff’s reports according to article 145 CPC News
10 December 2018


  Downloadable from


Who is this App for?

It is dedicated to companies that are subject to an infringement seizure or a bailiff’s report on unfair competition or parasitism.


Seizure allows a right holder to obtain an order ex-parte, authorizing a bailiff to visit a third party. Generally, his mission is to describe a product or process accused of infringement, to seize samples and commercial & financial information on the extent of the alleged infringement, etc. Bailiff’s reports obtained on the basis of Article 145 CPC are also frequently used to prove alleged facts of unfair competition.

The bailiff arrives by surprise at the company’s premises, and frequently obtains very sensitive and confidential information, both technical and commercial. This is often the core of trade secrets.

Faced with such intrusive measures, which are very often carried out under stressful conditions, the challenge is to react as best as possible to protect the company’s interests and assets, while respecting the law.


What is this App for?

4 sections to anticipate the situation and be ready in case you are subject to a seizure or a report within your company, but also to guide you step by step, from the arrival of the bailiff until the end of the operations:

    Train exposed staff in the company in advance and organize internally to be ready to react
  • «REACT»
    Emergency advice gathered in a checklist to be ticked, for the attention of the staff concerned (reception, internal referent, dedicated team)
  • «DO’S / DON’TS»
    Guidelines on the appropriate behaviour towards the bailiff and the pitfalls to avoid
    Checklist to be ticked at the end of the operations and anticipate potential remedies
