Leeds firm McCormicks has accepted an invitation to join an anti-counterfeiting group. The group operates as a forum for discussion and as a pressure group on matters relating to counterfeiting. Members include law firms, trading standards officers and companies with a strong interest in brand issues. Clifford Chance, Eversheds, Freshfields, BP, Cartier and Sony are all active in the group.

It is a forum in which members can exchange information in a disinterested manner for the common good. "
