TM Eye has over 1000 successful prosecutions from shoplifters to international criminal gangs.
The success of our Prolific Crimes and IP Crime Teams is enhanced by our expertise in bringing private prosecutions against offenders.
The prosecution of offenders through the criminal courts has become increasingly difficult due to the reduction in resources for Trading Standards Services, Police, and other law enforcement agencies.
TM Eye undertakes private criminal prosecutions on behalf of its clients. We gather overwhelming evidence of ‘crimes in action’ using established pro-active policing techniques. The evidence obtained is collated and submitted for review by our legal partners.
In the case of IP Crime, once we have built a substantive criminal case, we undertake enforcement action with Trading Standards and/or Police to gather and secure evidence and recover counterfeit goods. We then partner with specialist IP lawyers with expert knowledge of the Illicit Trade Industry to prosecute.
Trading Standards or Police Financial Investigation Teams work with us to identify criminal proceeds and assets so that these can be recovered / seized at the conclusion the case.
