Conducting an investigation into a possible infringer is the first significant step in IP enforcement. An investigation not only aims to determine the infringer’s business activities and the stock volume of counterfeit goods/extent of infringement, but also to locate any warehouses or storage areas that may be linked to the counterfeits/infringement.
Investigations also focus on acquiring infringing evidence that can persuade a regulatory authority to execute a raid against the infringer, such as counterfeit samples, price quotations, and other business materials. We along with IPR holders would consider the appropriate authorities’ competence, the nature of the infringement, and the scale of the counterfeits to get the suitable outcomes of the enforcement.
From anti-counterfeiting investigations to civil and criminal raids, we offer a wide range of intellectual property services.
