- Through systematic anti-counterfeiting raid actions, we send the message to mass consumers that brand owners have been taking specific measures to guarantee the quality of genuine products in the market, and through working on the protection of intellectual property rights in order to safeguard the interests of consumers, thereby emphasizing the brand owners’ strong sense of responsibility for the society to the public, intensifying brand reputation, and helping genuine products gain common acknowledgement from the relevant public worldwide.
Our Company has always considered taking raid actions against the origin of counterfeited brands as one of the most important aspects of our work for clients. But as raid actions against counterfeited products in the markets and raid actions against counterfeiting dens and factories are merely pecuniary loss to counterfeiters that can not put an end to the emergence of counterfeit products alone. Pursuing the criminal penalties against counterfeiters who have violated Criminal Law can not only eliminate the origin of counterfeiting, cutting off one source of counterfeiting in the sale market, but also it has a deterrent impact on other counterfeiters, pushing the extent of counterfeiting to within tolerable limits.
Our years of experience in serving world famous clients proves the esteem in which we are held by our clients and attests to the exceptionally high level of professionalism we have attained in the industry of intellectual property protection.
