"20 Years of Undercover Investigations in China"


Theodore Kavowras (Ret NYPD) is a Manager at Panoramic Consulting Limited which specializes in Intellectual Property (IP) Investigations primarily within Greater China.  Panoramic uses a range of investigative techniques to identify and document activities of manufacturers and exporters of counterfeit goods. One of their most effective methodologies which they have pioneered and developed over the last 25 years is making complex undercover business approaches from overseas companies to Chinese factories using expatriate agents. The rapid development of the Chinese economy and the export orientated economy make this a very effective way to document the infringing activities of Ted targets.  Ted will speak about the current state of affairs in China with respect to what investigation services are legal, what he does in the context of the Chinese legal system and how to properly instruct an investigator in China.

Ted is also going to be joined by Retired Detective Mr. Ming Li who will also speak on applying some of what Ted will discuss to his experience in New York City as a Detective liaison with the Chinese community. This should provide a unique perspective on the state of affairs within this community in both New York and China.

Enjoy learning more about Ted's fascinating experience from his interview with Francie Koehler on the essential PI's Declassified! podcast a few years back:
