Border Seizure

Back to Intellectual Property

Border seizure is an effective and inexpensive instrument for combating counterfeits and illegal parallel imports. Our legal experts are at your side throughout the entire seizure procedure.

In the event of a concrete seizure by the customs authority, we will be notified on your behalf. We clarify with you whether there is an infringement. Then we request the addressee to give his consent to the destruction of the goods. We can also organise the destruction, which is supervised by customs.

We have extensive expertise in border seizure procedures, e.g. at airports. This enables us to effectively prevent the import of infringing goods into Switzerland.

In the event of infringements, our lawyers are able to obtain interim injunctions Swiss court at short notice (for example at trade fairs). In this way, we effectively protect your rights.
