There is only one avenue of appeal in civil actions (trademark infringement and dilution) in Armenia, namely from the court of general jurisdiction to the Court of Appeals, and thereafter to the Court of Cassation.

Preliminary injunctions and other provisional remedies are not subject to appeal.

The appeal shall be filed within one month of the day of publication of the judgment of the first-instance court and is subject to an amount in dispute of a minimum of $120.

The Court of Appeals reviews the case within the limits of appeal. New evidence is generally not admissible. The appeal may be lodged due to violations of the civil procedure provisions, due to a mistake in the finding of facts or incomplete finding of facts or due to incorrect application of material law.

The Court of Cassation does not consider the facts of the case but only decides on the law, its interpretation and its application.
