Our aim has always been to utilise a specialist surveillance team to covertly gather evidence of counterfeits being sold in the marketplace, the High Street, wholesalers, and manufacturers making test purchases and then identifying where the stock is being stored. Our enforcement team of trained investigators then carry out raids with the respective authorities, seizing all offending merchandise, authenticating these and supply evidence for prosecutions.
We have a dedicated online team who deal with infringements on the internet worldwide either by having the sites taken down or carrying out test purchases, identifying where they are operating from for enforcement or other legal action.
We also work alongside UKBF identifying counterfeits goods coming into the UK usually from China, Turkey and more, making detentions and having these goods destroyed after they have been authenticated as fake.
