Turkey is often listed on top where counterfeiting activities are relatively high among other countries. This is mainly due to the fact that Turkey is transcontinental country in Eurasia as transit point of goods. It is effective tool to fight against counterfeits by filing customs applications for IP rights in Turkey. We have necessary knowledge and experience in handling customs protection in both prosecution and enforcement by our legal associates.
It is a reality that counterfeiting and piracy is on the increase. We can observe how it is rampant in our daily life; products are illegally imitated and trademarks and designs are infringed.
