Counterfeiting is one of the most dangerous criminal activities for the global economy. Cautious estimates by renowned institutes assume that more than 10% of all world trade has already been affected by brand piracy.
But counterfeiters not only stretch their dirty fingers into the coffers of legal producers or tax authorities, counterfeits can also threaten people’s lives and health. Counterfeit medicines with false or missing active ingredients, fake cigarettes soiled with additional ingredients that are harmful to health, fake toys with highly harmful softeners – these are just a few examples that show how extremely dangerous counterfeits can be.
Over the years ARROWS CONSULTING has developed unique strategies to fight against counterfeiting.
In contrast to many competitors, we use a holistic approach, which gives us the opportunity to recognize structures and patterns in global market behavior. In this way, we can recognize complex structures that are used to market counterfeit goods. We act on all significant levels, the digital and real market, within criminal structures and also at the overlapping area between legal and illegal market activities. We use the latest technologies, e.g. in forensic analysis, and the mathematical structuring of large amounts of data (data mining).
The great wealth of experience of our investigators and employees and the ability to make structural predictions enables us to penetrate even large and well-organized criminal counterfeiting structures.
