Kroll’s Intellectual Property Advisory Services team helps companies proactively address threats to their IP by securing, monitoring and managing IP assets more effectively. Our experts investigate and respond to IP theft and infringement to mitigate losses. We help businesses with IP issues during the entire lifecycle of the investigation and dispute, including through discovery, litigation and trial. 

Our experts support and advise clients in related disputes and have been called on to provide reports and testimony in courts across the U.S. and Canada, at the International Trade Commission, and across global arbitration venues, including the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) and Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC).

Kroll’s expert analysis and investigations help mitigate losses, support litigation and inform criminal proceedings in cases of theft, counterfeiting, patent infringement, trademark infringement and gray market diversion. 

  • Kroll supports businesses at every stage and in every kind of IP dispute, with strategic advice and expert evidence. From early case assessment and litigation readiness and prevention to expert reports and testimony, mediation and settlement presentation, we help get the results businesses need.
  • Our team assists in identifying and mitigating IP threats internally and throughout the supply chain, through infringement channel mapping, eDiscovery and computer forensic services, and cyber security experts to detect vulnerabilities, uncover data manipulation and track intrusions.
  • We investigate suspected infringements, gathering intelligence to support action on the dark web, in the field, through social network analysis and using sample acquisitions. Our experts have close working relationships with regulators, police forces and customs and enforcement agencies worldwide. Find out more about Kroll’s IP Investigations practice.
  • Our IP experts provide robust analysis to quantify losses and support recovery of damages. Kroll professionals work closely with in-house counsel and outside legal teams to provide detailed and credible analysis of economic harm.

Kroll supports clients in tax cases related to intercompany usage of IP assets, offering guidance and advice in disputes and inquiries with regulators and others.
