Intellectual Property Investigation & Protection
Taking steps to protect intellectual property (IP) from loss or theft is critical, and when an IP incident occurs a quick and thoughtful response is crucial.
Augustus Hall Limited works closely with clients to protect intellectual property, including customer data, trade secrets, trademarks and patents. We help protect against piracy, counterfeiting, gray market diversion and misappropriation by former employees, business associates and third parties.
We often find that individuals involved in compromising a company’s IP are a combination of current or former employees/ representatives, competitors, trusted customers, distributors or vendors; therefore the security equation must encompass issues of operational security and a whole lot more. Each factor impacts one another and should not be looked at in isolation.
