Fueled by worldwide consumer demand, counterfeiting is a multibillion dollar problem for brand owners. Enforcement can be difficult and requires a well planned strategy. How counterfeiters operate changes frequently, and the problems are increasingly moving off the streets and onto the Internet.
At Kilpatrick Townsend, we choose the right strategy to tackle particular counterfeiting problems and we have considerable experience in combating online sales of counterfeits. We have extensive experience in designing and implementing cost-effective anti-counterfeiting programs, including recording IP rights with customs authorities, training personnel and enforcement authorities to recognize counterfeits, building anti-counterfeiting databases, developing forms to preserve evidence and establishing an enforcement network.
We have an excellent network of investigators and law enforcement contacts to assist our clients in their anti-counterfeiting efforts. We are also active in many brand owners groups, through which our clients can take joint actions against counterfeiters, thereby reducing their costs.
