Conduct & Organize Criminal/Civil Seizures
As an IP right holder, it is essential that you do everything possible to protect your intellectual property, and the reputation of your brand; some Indian manufacturers also regularly produce goods which are confusingly similar to well-known brand-name products.
GREVESGROUP®'s team of investigators can work with you at all phases of the investigation process, from identifying infringers to arranging sample purchases then organizing raids i.e. Criminal Action and/or Civil Action on counterfeiting companies/individuals.
We work on intellectual property issues including trademark protection, Copyright protection, counterfeiting, patent protection, and dealing with products which are similar to the extent to cause confusion.
If you suspect that your product is being counterfeited, we can work to identify the manufacturer of the counterfeit goods. Once we identified the counterfeiter, or if you already have an idea who the counterfeiter is, we can conduct in-depth investigation of the offending company.
If the target is a company, we can conduct a company search to identify the owners of the company, and to provide you with information on the targets' manufacturing capability, its assets, and its financial situation. While the investigation continues, we can also arrange discreet surveillance of the offending company, and of the individuals involved in the counterfeiting.
Our associate lawyers will suggest you the type of action to be taken which will be most beneficial to your company, i.e. Civil Action, Criminal Action or combination of both. We then work with the relevant authorities to arrange for a raid of the target company's premises. Depending on the severity of the case, this can lead to anything from the authorities seizing the fake products through to the counterfeiters being fined or having their factories closed down, or to the counterfeiters being arrested.
We often able to obtain brochures, business cards or letterheads of the other company or product literature displaying use of the mark in question, sample products and/or photographs of signage or business places. Kindly ensure that all these items are requested in advance. We continuously strive to help our clients and our aim is to provide a consistently high standard of service at competitive compensations ensuring value for money.
