PUTTING OUT FIRES — Stopping Counterfeits Found in Parallel Imports Mixing counterfeits in parallel import shipments has become a convenient way to ship pirated goods into destined markets. In addition, counterfeiters have adopted sophisticated shipment routes to evade the oversight of Customs and brand owners.

Colgate-Palmolive and Montex Holdings v. Diesel when the goods travel through the EU or are repackaged in the EU before they are shipped to non-EU markets. Find out how others select outside counsel and maximize collaboration.
