Civil and Criminal Anti-Counterfeiting
Our attorneys assist companies in implementing brand protection strategies to halt the importation of counterfeit goods and prevent the sale of counterfeit products. As part of this effort, we help companies target and investigate counterfeit traffickers, and then assemble and analyze evidence to support successful criminal investigations and prosecutions as well as civil litigation resulting in asset freezes and other remedies.
Since 2001, our team has actively worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, Secret Service and other state and federal law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. in its representation of victim companies, resulting in dozens of criminal convictions, jail sentences and restitution orders. Relying on our team’s international law enforcement experience, we also actively coordinate investigations and law enforcement referrals in jurisdictions all over the world.
