Company Description

Fueled by worldwide consumer demand, counterfeiting is a multi-billion dollar problem for brand owners. Enforcement can be difficult and requires a well-planned strategy. The strategies counterfeiters employ change frequently, and the bulk of the problem has now moved off the streets and onto the Internet. At Kilpatrick Townsend, we choose the right strategy to tackle particular counterfeiting problems, and we have considerable expertise in combating online sales of counterfeits.

Our firm offers extensive experience in designing and implementing cost-effective anti-counterfeiting programs, including the identification of relevant targets, effective and targeted enforcement (up to and including litigation), and maintenance of databases to identify relationships between and among infringers and the sources of counterfeit goods. We are also experienced in recording intellectual property rights with customs authorities, training personnel and enforcement authorities to recognize counterfeits, developing forms to preserve evidence and establishing a broader enforcement network.

At Kilpatrick Townsend, we have more than 300 attorneys devoted to the practice of intellectual property law. We offer unmatched depth and strength and are focused entirely on serving our clients. Our experience in the intellectual property field has earned us an international reputation for excellence.

Our IP professionals assist clients all over the world, and have longstanding relationships with attorneys and agents around the globe with whom we can secure international IP protection for our clients. We also have accomplished IP attorneys within the firm with substantial experience in international litigation and counseling, particularly in China.

Our IP group is often recognized for its excellence in all facets of IP. For example, the National Law Journal recently named us as one of only 15 law firms on The 2015 IP Hot List. We are regularly recognized by Chambers, Legal 500, and Managing Intellectual Property as one of the nation’s top IP practices.
