We work alongside designers and brand owners to protect and enforce the look of their products and packaging. We advise on all aspects of design law, including registered designs and unregistered design rights.
Our attorneys are experienced in obtaining registered design protection in the UK and the European Union and in filing design applications through the international Hague System. Working with our network of carefully chosen overseas attorneys, we also obtain protection for our clients’ designs around the world, including US design patents.
Design law is a constantly evolving field, especially in Europe. With our specialist knowledge of the differences in design laws around the world, and how designs interact with other forms of IP, we help our clients secure the best protection for their designs.
We also advise our clients on issues regarding the infringement and validity of registered and unregistered designs in the UK and the EU. Although we are often able to resolve disputes without resorting to litigation, we have attorneys who are qualified to act in design-related litigation before the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court and the High Court in the UK.
