How do we protect brands against counterfeiting?
We help brand owners through market investigations to detect counterfeit goods in the market.
In case we find any counterfeits, we file criminal complaints through the police or the public prosecution.
Then raids shall be carried out and, if substantiated, the counterfeited products will be seized.
Depending on which prosecution method was used, i.e., police or civil, the case will be continued until the destruction of the seized counterfeits.
In the case of criminal prosecution with the police, the case will be transferred to the criminal court.
The criminal court can issue fines and even jail sentences and order the confiscation and destruction of the infringing goods. Contact us for more information
