Represented Victorinox Swiss Army in action for trademark infringement, trademark dilution and unfair competition against three sellers of decoded Swiss Army fragrances. Decoded fragrances lack the quality control and anti-counterfeiting devices that Victorinox includes in its products at the time of manufacture. The firm obtained consent judgments including injunctive and monetary relief. Women's Wear Daily, a leading industry publication, featured this victory for Victorinox Swiss Army and pointed out the importance of this issue to our client and our client’s efforts to protect the Swiss Army brand from counterfeiters: "Already, counterfeit imitations of our fragrances with an estimated retail value of more than $1 million have been seized by the alert action of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection with our cooperation," said Veronika Elsener, Victorinox Chair.
