Does a laywer have the authority to demand a cease and desist

Does a laywer have the authority to demand a cease and desist order? or does this have to be a court order?

A lawyer can not order you do anything. Only a court has the legal power to order you to do or not do something. And this requires somebody to commence a lawsuit against you, where you will have the opportunity to defend and raise counterclaims.
