Support for you from start to finish.

We have participated in more than 3500 ex parte raids and have used numerous strategies to stay under the radar while gaining valuable information from infringers and counterfeiters. We have partnered with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to conduct undercover buys and participate in the seizure and impoundment of counterfeit goods.
