Counterfeiting is a global problem that introduces unsafe and ineffective products into the marketplace while costing governments and businesses lost tax revenues, income and jobs. Counterfeiters are also a major problem for our clients, resulting in lost sales, markets flooded with poor quality imitations, health and safety risks to consumers who purchase counterfeits, and tarnishment of the brand.
