What we do


We are here to help secure your design rights.

Ensuring maximum protection for your product designs

Our team is here to give you expert guidance on strategy, timing and costs to ensure that your product designs are protected in key markets.

As design registrations are territorial by nature, design protection may be required in different countries. Our attorneys have in-depth experience in this field, and also work with trusted overseas agents to secure design protection the world over.

What can be protected?

Design laws have been established around the world to protect the look and shape of a product. In the UK, automatic protection may be available on the creation of any new design. However, not all countries acknowledge such rights, and it is therefore advisable to take positive steps to register a design, because registered rights are generally easier to enforce. We can advise on which aspects of a product may be protectable and how those identified aspects may best be represented to maximise protection.

Securing your rights

Registered Designs are typically exclusive rights that protect the outward appearance of the whole, or part of, a product resulting from its features - such as the lines or contours - and/or its ornamentation. We can help with the filing of UK registered design applications, as well as Registered Community Design applications, which are single design registrations that cover multiple EU countries.
