RVD Business Intelligence Consultancy, Inc. (RVDBic) which is an integral unit of R. V. Domingo & Associates (RVDLaw), employs a full complement of in-house investigative staff with a collective experience in this practice area spanning more than forty (40) years. All RVDBic’s investigative activities are supervised and overseen by the RVDLaw’s Legal Staff to ensure the admissibility, probative value and integrity of the pieces of evidence gathered in the course of the investigations which eventually lead to actual suppression activities. This unique RVDLaw-RVDBic operational interface provides a seamless, efficient, strategic, and cost-efficient brand and intellectual property rights protection system and methodology which allows a quick and effective response and solution to any anti-piracy and –counterfeiting problem.
Significantly, a study commissioned by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) on “Improving the Adjudication of IPR Cases in the Philippines” concluded that one of the major reasons for the ineffective and inefficient prosecution of IPR cases in this jurisdiction is the inept and haphazard gathering of pieces of evidence in support of search warrant applications with the regular courts.
RVDBic has adequate logistical resources and manpower capability to respond within twenty-four (24) to forty-eight (48) hours from time of receipt of Client’s report of the occurrence of counterfeiting or piracy in any part of the country or elsewhere in the neighboring Asia/Pacific countries. Through its extensive investigative and intelligence network and effective liaison with key intellectual property rights (“IPR”) enforcement government agencies such as the National Bureau of Investigation (“NBI”) and the Philippine National Police (“PNP”), RVDBic deploys regular informants and “assets” in key, strategic cities in the country where high incidents of counterfeiting and piracy of a wide spectrum of leading products and brands are reported almost daily. RVDBic likewise has correspondence relationship with leading law firms and investigative organizations in the Asia-Pacific Region and elsewhere in the world.
RVDBic has designed and successfully implemented the anti-piracy and –counterfeiting programs for the soap and detergent industry, the food and beverages companies, major recording and motion picture companies, motorcycle companies, garments and clothing apparels companies, imaging companies, watch manufacturers, footwear manufacturers, toys and gaming companies, cosmetics and fragrances companies, computer microchip manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, software, and other manufacturers of analogous products.
