Client: European Luxury item Manufacturer
Problem: Trademark & Product infringement (Counterfeit)
- Client noted an unexplainable loss in regional sales.
- The “fake products” were of reasonably high quality and difficult to validate to the untrained eye.
- We tracked down the manufacturing plant in China via international associates & verified distribution channels into Malaysia.
- Also managed to identify the key players and their involvement.
- A linked company already being investigated in another country was also involved in this conspiracy.
- Two plants North of Malaysia were also discovered and infiltrated
- Eventual raid by Police was timed to implicate a “Big Wig” and with Cyber Forensics, we were able produce undisputable proof of the activities.
- Law suit resulted in huge fines for the infringing parties.
- Clients sales improved immediately.
