Intellectual Property

Intellectual property is a valuable asset and unauthorised use, or counterfeiting, can cause a company considerable damage, both in the short and long term. Loss of revenue (direct and indirect), diminished company image through mistaken identity and poor copies of a legitimate product, lost opportunities (immediate and long term) are just some of the most damaging consequences.

AWI investigates the illegal use of intellectual property both online and by traditional means. For example, when investigating the manufacturing and sale of counterfeit goods, AWI obtain video and survey/witness evidence, negotiate seizure of the goods and refer the matter to authorities where appropriate and on the client’s instructions.
