Online Brand Enforcement

No nonsense protection from imitators and infringers

The transition to online retail accelerated dramatically during the Covid-19 pandemic. There are more platforms to monitor, and more potential infringers who pay no attention to your IP rights. 

Traditional brand protection methods don’t work anymore, and could result in spiralling costs. The need for constant monitoring can quickly overwhelm in-house teams.

So we developed a better way. 

We built an anti-counterfeiting monitoring and enforcement strategy around a deep understanding of your brand and your business needs, saving you time, money and worry.



Online Brand Enforcement – managed by Stobbs

We’ve combined the breadth of legal functions and our knowledge of technology to create a service that’s effective and easy to use.

Our service begins with our understanding of your brand objectives. Then we provide legal oversight without spiralling costs and enforcement advice informed by commercial realities.

Partners and Processes

Our expertise across platforms helps you choose the best combination of online solutions for your brand.

And while the old-fashioned approach to legal oversight makes costs difficult to control, we manage high-volume at agreed low or fixed cost.


Efficient Enforcement

Not everything has to go to court - we work with you to define efficient, standardised enforcement responses that give you specific, low-cost enforcement. Trading Standards, merchant complaints, WHOis inaccuracies, Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit liaison – it’s all covered.

Escalation when it makes commercial sense

Our commercial and brand understanding informs when and how to take enforcement to the next level. We assess the costs and benefits on your behalf, so you know whether the returns justify the escalation effort.
