Europe’s Brand Protection Experts

Anti-Counterfeiting & Anti-Piracy

The reproduction and distribution of copyrighted material and counterfeiting is big business, with annual revenue losses to owners running to billions of dollars.

But you can protect what’s yours. And you not only make it difficult for counterfeiters to profit from your reputation but you can also stop them quickly and effectively – with the right strategy and the right partner.

Parallel Import also referred to as “grey market goods” allows less scrupulous re-sellers to exploit price differentials by selling branded goods at a discount in some markets at the expense of the authorised distributor. We have effective methods to act against parallel importers. Talk to us and it will be done.

Thanks to a strong presence in Europe our success rate is consistently high between 90 and 100%.
