Transnational research


Effective IP enforcement depends on gathering reliable information and evidence of infringing activity. We have a diverse team of skilled researchers covering a range of languages and cultures. They are led by a manager with over 24 years of experience conducting enquiries across Europe, the Middle East and Far East.

We are particularly effective in the transnational pursuit of counterfeiting networks, following the supply chain back to the source of production. The factories we uncover are mostly located in China, and sometimes in other countries like Turkey, Iran, the UAE, India and Bangladesh.

Our research team also identifies the physical locations of online sellers of counterfeit goods, conducts discreet trademark usage enquiries, and produces sophisticated due-diligence style reports on large transnational organizations.

We use the iptrac database to report our findings, and its Intelligence Map to connect the dots between infringers worldwide.
