Brand protection and anti-counterfeiting
Brand Protection is the comprehensive strategy that brand owners need in the fight against all forms of counterfeiting and collateral wrongdoing. It includes border controls, blocking sales in physical and electronic markets, reclaiming misappropriated domain names, stopping online copyright and trademark infringement, shutting down online vendors and anything to do with fakes.
Counterfeiting poses a material risk to anyone who has invested the time and effort in growing a successful brand. At Gowling WLG, our dedicated global brand protection team assists clients in tackling counterfeiters offline and online, wherever they may operate.
