The Italian office provides assistance for Customs cases in Slovenia. The cooperation with Slovenian Customs is well established and the simplified procedure is applied. This allows us to manage most of the cases in an effective and cost-efficient manner. Slovenia is generally used as a transit port of entry for counterfeit goods coming from China and destined to neighbouring EU countries. Thanks to our external legal counsel we are able to provide legal follow up of civil cases.
