Schuman & Co. has extensive experience acting for leading international and Israeli brands, in relation to anti-counterfeiting, piracy, passing-off, domain name disputes and enforcing and protecting brands, whether in Israel or as part of a coordinated international anti-piracy action. Our clients operate in a broad range of sectors including electronic products, fashion, luxury brands, jewelry, toys and clothing.
Our attorneys provide legal aid in combating counterfeiting of brand-name products. We represent our clients before the Israel Customs Authority and Israeli court system from the moment of reporting a suspicion of importing products infringing a trademark or an industrial design. We monitor the internet and physical markets in terms of marketing the counterfeits of our clients’ original products. Schuman & Co. acts as a facilitator, often acting on behalf of the rights owner, to complete customs applications, as well as handling all seizure cases, including all communication, sampling, storage, and destruction.
Schuman & Co. serves as the Israel partner of the REACT anti-counterfeit network. Through this wide international network, we are able to offer a full range of legal services related to the detention of counterfeit goods imported into Israel and legal representation in the process of pursuing claims on this account.
