If you need to protect your brand, we can support you with both the speedy removal of the counterfeits and the enforcement of orders for damages for infringement.

Counterfeits

Under law, counterfeit goods are deemed to belong to the trademark owner, not the counterfeiter.

Using a writ of delivery to recover specific goods, we have a great deal of experience and expertise in removing counterfeits from circulation. These enforcement actions often require a co-ordinated approach to effect simultaneous raids on multiple warehouses and retailers, where we act with discretion to maintain good relations with retailers.

The complete removal of the goods may be a lower priority for Trading Standards and the Police than for the brand owner, so High Court enforcement can often be a more effective option.

Patent claims for damages

When an IP dispute such as a trademark or copyright infringement arises in the Patents County Court, the dispute may lead to a monetary award being made to the successful party.

Should the award remain unpaid, then you can instruct us to obtain and enforce a writ of control to secure payment of the award.

Should you need to recover both the goods and collect damages and costs, we can enforce for both under a single writ of delivery.
