Protecting a Global Fashion Brand
We provided investigative support to a global brand protection campaign, including identifying and monitoring sales channels, tracking counterfeit goods and mapping supply chains, making test purchases, and investigating multiple counterfeiting rings across four continents, mainly in China and Europe. Our work contributed to legal actions in 15 countries and evidence given in multiple venues.
Anti-counterfeiting for Tech Firm
Working for a European technology company, we supported its anti-counterfeiting unit focused on identifying the epicentre of an organized crime network copying its technology. Working with the client to develop human sources from its legal actions, we provided actionable intelligence on production and distribution of counterfeited products. We worked closely with the client’s team in gathering, analysing and prioritising intelligence leads to inform surveillance and sting operations leading to disruption actions resulting in seizures and arrests in Europe.
Reduced Sales at Beverage Company
A drinks industry client was experiencing a significant reduction in sales in the MENA region as a result of the presence of counterfeit spirit. Mintz Group IP conducted a covert investigation in extremely challenging conditions in Iraqi Kurdistan, deploying covert human intelligence sources at significant personal risk. We were able to identify the parties responsible for the production, enabling our client to lobby at the highest levels of government for local action to be taken.
