Counterfeit and gray market goods account for billions of dollars in lost sales to legitimate trademark owners. Ground zero for this activity is Southern China. In tight coordination with on-the-ground assets across China and Hong Kong, Marksmen offers counterfeit investigations, test purchases, proactive market surveys and integrity checks of manufacturers to uncover back channel sales. Marksmen also works with regional Customs Agents in support of seizures and other goods in transit issues.
Counterfeit investigations are not limited to China. Marksmen supports client anti-counterfeiting needs across the globe. From South Africa to Russia, from Australia to Turkey, Marksmen will work with you to protect your valuable trademark assets.
Counterfeit investigations are billed hourly or as a flat fee on a specific, negotiated project-by-project basis.
