Intellectual Property Protection & Enforcement

Theft and abuse of intellectual property is a massive global problem. Protection and enforcement requires a global solution. Chas & Associates have both the resources and the reach to implement a program of strategic and tactical responses to Intellectual Property (IP) issues wherever they occur. No product or commodity is immune to these kinds of problems. From fashion and watches, to pharmaceuticals and building supplies, to proprietary research – IP theft is big business. Protection of IP is a critical corporate objective necessary for long-term growth and survival.
From raids to market surveys, sting operations to strategic publicity, royalty collection to alliance building, and a strategic assessment of a counter-party’s IP during a corporate transaction to expert evidence (to determine loss), we help you keep control of your rightful property, as well as assess losses and recover damages wherever possible.
 

Cyber-Expertise

We have considerable resources and expertise in tracking the abuse of IP and in consulting on IP protection in cyberspace. This includes everything from finding the physical warehouse of a discount web merchant to investigating domain name, website, and web-traffic theft.
 

Due Diligence Investigations

A variety of risks are inherent in today’s increasingly complex global marketplace, including mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures. Business deals are based on expected synergies and anticipated profits, but entering a business relationship requires thorough due diligence investigation to ensure the capability, stability, and solvency of your new team – individuals who will have access to highly sensitive information.
We provide you with factual information about the integrity of individuals and business entities so you can make a strategic decision.
