CRI® Group Works with Corporations and Law Firms Worldwide to Identify, Investigate and Pursue Parties That Are Damaging Your Intellectual Property.

Intellectual property can be a business’s most valuable asset. So when outside parties threaten to steal your ideas, copy your products or disrupt your marketing channels, corrective action on your part can become tedious, time-consuming and expensive. CRI® Group’s Intellectual Property Investigations team helps companies identify threats to IP and confidential information internally and throughout their supply chain, develop the appropriate mitigation strategies and investigate suspected infringements.

It devalues corporate reputations, hinders investment, funds terrorism, and costs hundreds of thousands of people their livelihoods annually. CRI® Group utilises various techniques, analytics, and global technology to investigate intellectual property infringements, including the use of international Counterfeiting Seizure Maps and International Anti-Counterfeiting Directories. Our strategic partnerships with IP firms worldwide ensure that leads are identified and investigated for infringing IP rights and claims are settled expeditiously.
