Counterfeiting is on the increase, threatening the competitiveness of your business and putting the health and safety of your consumers at risk.
The Investigations Team at Begbies Traynor specialise in seeking out and shutting down the illegal copying and/or distribution of fake goods in breach of patent or copyright in order to protect the value of brands exposed throughout the world.
We adopt a multi-disciplinary approach to tackling infringement activity as follows:
Investigations require strategic assessment and a tactical approach towards securing the intelligence needed to build a case proving theft of proprietary material. Our experienced investigation team will covertly profile all third party suppliers, distributors and manufacturers anywhere in the world. When reporting we will provide firm recommendations leading towards the closure of such rogue operations as swiftly as possible.
Our experienced Forensic Technology experts assist brand owners and their legal advisors to trace, retrieve, secure and analyse relevant electronic information. Our team’s capabilities aid in developing evidence which will support allegations of suspected fraud or theft.
Once evidence of intellectual property infringement has been established, our Forensic Accountants are able to quantify the financial impact of the infringement and can help you through the process of financial recovery.
Through detailed assessment and interrogation of supply chains, our bespoke security services are specifically designed to mitigate the risk of intellectual property infringement and Parallel Trading. We work with clients to develop and implement a security strategy that protects their most valuable assets.
