Our specialist design attorneys are leading experts in registered and unregistered design protection across the globe and can guide you through this complicated area of law.
Design rights as part of your IP protection
Design protection can complement patent and trade mark protection, and in some instances is the only form of protection available to new innovations and designs. Design rights can be registered or unregistered and protect the appearance of your products and branding. They have many advantages and provide valuable protection, frequently at a lower cost than patents and trade marks.
