Counterfeiting and piracy is a big threat to your brand and business. To protect your intellectual property you need decisive and cost-effective anti-counterfeiting strategies. Kensington Swan’s tailored cease and desist and take-down campaigns combined with innovative cost solutions help our clients manage their anti-counterfeiting budgets.
Close links with China
Kensington Swan has relationships with Chinese lawyers and investigators who have made an impact on counterfeiting rings in China. Our lawyers know that in counterfeiting most roads lead to China, and we are aware of the supply chain context into which New Zealand fits.
Our team includes highly skilled litigators with extensive experience in seeking urgent court relief to protect the market from counterfeit products. We regularly work with law enforcement and border protection agencies.
Several international brand owners
By maintaining a portfolio of New Zealand Customs registrations, we protect our clients and consumers from importation of counterfeit branded products. Counterfeit products mislead consumers, are usually poor quality, and can be dangerous.

Our lawyers took enforcement action against various parties for selling and hiring out counterfeit OSCAR® statuettes. We protected the client’s intellectual property rights from infringement and dilution in the New Zealand market and raised awareness of the proprietary rights in the OSCAR® brand and design.
