Intellectual Property Investigation
Kroll investigates intellectual property (IP) loss and theft, data breaches, and patent infringements to identify the perpetrators, support litigation and bring the matters to resolution. Kroll’s global network enables effective investigations and raid actions across markets at different points in the supply chain.
Kroll maintains the highest ethical and legal standards while conducting its IP investigations. The result is actionable intelligence on which clients can base strategic and tactical decisions.
Only Kroll has the breadth of resources to provide a range of approaches, involving forensic accounting, electronic discovery and other methodologies, as well as traditional investigative tools, including covert operations and surveillance, to best suit the client’s needs and objectives. Our advantage lies in the diverse skills of our investigative teams, comprised of former prosecutors, forensic accountants, investigators, computer forensic specialists and intelligence analysts. Kroll works closely with the client’s senior management and its legal counsel. After evaluating the problem and clearly defining the client’s objectives, we can swiftly present a strategy designed to identify sources of information and responsibility for wrongdoing. An effective investigation often involves interviews of employees; identification of non-employee witnesses; the location, retrieval and analysis of critical documents and data; and an effective risk mitigation strategy. We communicate with our client regularly throughout the process to ensure that the investigative process remains consistent with their objectives.
