Have you developed a product?

Did you start to sell it online with some success and then almost overnight see other products (that looked like your product) pop-up on platforms like Amazon and Alibaba? Are they using your likeness, your images or your branding?  Have you seen your sales decline or is there customer confusion on what is authentic? 

Have you received complaints about a product that wasn't yours? 
That’s counterfeiting and we can help stop it.

Ference Law is a leading intellectual property law firm, fighting against counterfeit goods and the misrepresentation of products. 
We help owners, sellers and inventors stop online counterfeiting. 

If online hijackers are selling counterfeit versions of your product, we institute action on your behalf. We develop customized strategies to protect you and your brand from intellectual property violations.

Our attorneys are results driven and have shutdown thousands of online sellers, allowing our clients to recapture their market and sales.


E-commerce platforms have become an ideal storefront for counterfeit products.

They provide a space for counterfeiters to connect with potential customers at a low cost. Most counterfeiters falsely represent themselves by:

  • Using the brand or product name.
  • Taking photos, videos and/or messaging from the seller’s website.
  • Implementing a bait & switch technique – marketing themselves as an authentic product at a reduced price and then shipping counterfeit products that are poorly manufactured and unsafe.
