Anti-counterfeiting & Anti-piracy

Industry world-wide loses billions every year to counterfeiters and pirates. With counterfeiting and piracy soaring per annum, more and more companies are taking a proactive role in preventing their products from being counterfeited and/or pirated.

We can devise cost-effective anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy strategies, tailored to your requirements, which are designed to catch counterfeits and pirated goods at the EU border and combat perpetrators within the market. Together with a network of trusted associates, we can support you in the war against counterfeiting and piracy across the whole of the EU and beyond.

We work together with Customs authorities around the EU, either directly or via trusted overseas associates, to oversee each detention from initial notification through to destruction (where appropriate). We can also work with you to create brand protection guides, arrange for training of Customs officials, and utilise the new EUIPO Enforcement Database.

We work with the Police across Greece to target internally traded counterfeit and pirated goods and assist the authorities in relation to specific investigations. We advise and act on obtaining ex parte injunctions, including search and seizure orders.

We have a vast litigation experience across a variety of industries affected by counterfeiting and piracy, including detergents, the apparel, software, electronics, luxury goods, fashion clothes, perfumes, sportswear, toys, music recordings, motion pictures, spare parts and car accessories, pharmaceuticals.
