Our Services

At JMW, we are able to take on counterfeiting cases of all types, providing advice and representation to businesses of all sizes. Counterfeit fraud is the selling of goods that are not what they are advertised to be. The term is most often used in the selling of items such as:

  • Fake designer goods
  • Pirate DVDs
  • Pirate CDs
  • Fake perfumes
  • Fake accessories

We take on cases brought by Trading Standards, as well as Revenue and Customs and the Crown Prosecution Service. If your case involves the alleged selling of counterfeit goods online we can help too - over the past few years we have seen a rise in the number of these cases due to the increased use of internet auction sites, and we have always been at the forefront of legal developments in this area.

We have particular expertise in dealing with cases involving pharmaceutical counterfeiting. We have represented those who imported what they believed to be genuine products in good faith only to later discover they were fake, leaving them facing criminal charges.

We are renowned for providing expert defence for all types of counterfeit charges. As well as representing those who have been accused of selling fake designer goods, our counterfeiting defence solicitors have also worked on complex cases of lesser known counterfeiting, from fake pharmaceuticals to industrial chemicals.
