Case Studies

“When Uutensil were faced with a design infringement issue, we were unsure what, if anything, we were able to do about it. We instructed BEUK to conduct various covert test purchases of suspect infringing products from Amazon on our behalf. BEUK were able to inspect the goods and confirm them as counterfeit.

Using this evidence, we were then able to have the offending listings removed on our behalf.  This was a cost-effective way for us to fight against the production and sale of the infringing goods.” Gavin Reay, Owner, uutensil Ltd www.uutensil.com

“On becoming aware of the sale of our goods online by an unauthorised trader, ECOCAMEL instructed BEUK to investigate this particular eBay trader whom we suspected was infringing our registered designs and/or or patents.

Before deciding which action to take against this trader, we first needed to establish any person(s) at the company, along with their current financial standing.

BEUK managed to confirm details of the two directors, their residential addresses, property ownership and value (purchase price £70k, current value £350k) along with three years’ worth of company financials that detailed their rate of growth (2011 10k to 2013 £35k).

We were also supplied with the trader’s second limited company which further demonstrated the scale of the operation. A third PLC was also discovered but had not yet filed any annual accounts.” Ofir Neuman, Owner, EcoCamel Ltd www.ecocamel.com
