Advancements in technology have made infringers better at evading detection and prosecution; as a result there has been a significant increase in copyrights piracy, products counterfeiting, and trademarks infringement that has forced brand owners to take more innovative approaches to intellectual property enforcement.
At Arochi & Lindner, we enforce the intellectual property rights of our clients in matters ranging from counterfeiting and piracy to comprehensive and consistent programs that include preventive and corrective actions. On one hand, we provide counseling services for strategizing, consulting, preparing, and implementing all preventative measures to protect IP rights including investigation services as well as educational programs and trainings for authorities. Moreover, we carry out all necessary actions to enforce those rights, both legal and extrajudicial, including criminal actions, administrative remedies, civil proceedings for claiming damages; border measures; drafting and serving C&D letters.
Our anti-counterfeiting and antipiracy team works in close cooperation with Customs, the police, prosecutors, and the courts to coordinate rapid and efficient actions. Our attorneys have extensive experience in uncovering counterfeiting, gathering criminal evidence, and then bringing criminal proceedings with a view to obtaining convictions and damages in a timely and expeditious manner.
