The fine wine-world is a small community. Collectors attend lavish pre-auction dinners where they taste spectacular food pared with vintages that sell for thousands. But when a small group of unscrupulous collectors started dumping counterfeit bottles into the marketplace, that world was thrown into turmoil. International law suits were filed; federal arrests and convictions followed.
Brad Goldstein, president of Resilience Communications, planned and managed a multi-million dollar international investigation that resulted in million dollar judgments against several litigants, positive messaging for the victims, and new laws that protect consumers. Now the subject of a best-selling book, numerous television specials, documentaries, magazine articles and daily press coverage, a series of negative events has resulted in positive changes for the industry and collectors.
