As an independent third party, Cristal Group International has been appointed to establish the exhaustive lists of every intellectual property registered in the USA.
A UK-based corporation planning on acquiring a controlling stake in a Caribbean-based mining venture, commissioned Cristal Group International to conduct a thorough assessment of the ownership history as well as of the past and present modus operandi of that company.
