In today’s world your intellectual property is very vulnerable to counterfeiting, piracy, and theft. We help you to detect these holes in your intellectual property and put a stop to those individuals that are trying to cause harm to you and your business.

Over the years we have helped numerous brand owners recoup significant financial damages with the help of our enforcement actions. Our litigation targeting perpetual counterfeiters has resulted in the destruction and confiscation of many counterfeit products.
We design custom programs to fit your needs, whether to protect a global brand or to thwart counterfeiters in a particular location of the world. These custom programs fit your business objectives and your individual business needs. We work with a group of intellectual property enforcement professionals that have international experience. We will protect your valuable brands and IP rights, working with government officials and local and international IP enforcement organizations.
