Design rights

Securing and defending the IP rights that protect the visual attributes of a product, not just its functionality, can be at the heart of an overarching protection strategy for a range of products. This has become even more complex due to recent changes in IP law in the UK and across Europe, requiring legal advisers with the necessary insight and experience to help.

We have worked on the full spectrum of design right issues for clients ranging from global high-end brands to smaller designers and manufacturers.  This has included disputes involving products such as toothbrushes, perfume, bottles, air fresheners, mobile telephones and robotics.
