We are here to PROTECT your brand and keep your customers safe.
Counterfeiting and trademark infringements are serious Intellectual Property crimes that defraud consumers, threaten health and safety and violate the rights of trademark, patent, and copyright owners. “Fake” or “Forged” products pose a significant threat to consumers’ safety, by unsuspectingly putting their health in jeopardy each time they use counterfeited products.
World trade in FAKE goods is rising.
Alcoholic beverages, food products, electronic goods, software, toys and luxury items, automobiles and aircraft parts maintained with substandard or counterfeit parts continue to be a huge risk to consumers and the brand owners’ reputation.
Our team helps brand owners gather the evidence required to produce prosecution packages for private and criminal proceedings.
We offer a truly GLOBAL reach.
Our brand protection headquarters is based in Dubai, UAE, which gives us local knowledge when we are asked to help brand owners and clients with market surveys, test purchases and intellectual property due diligence research in the Middle East. Recent cases have involved working in the UAE, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
TenIntelligence has a long, established and trustful relationship with local Law Enforcement Agencies (including Police, Customs, Economic Development Departments and Municipalities) in the different Emirates, which allows us to work alongside them collaboratively for the identification and safe removal of counterfeit products.
