Registered or unregistered design rights


In order to protect how a product looks, as opposed to how it works, it is important to register the design.

The design of a product can be protected as an unregistered design, or after registration at the patent office as a registered design.

Our team, alongside our commercial team, can offer assistance and advice for the protection, management and enforcement of your registered and unregistered design rights.

In particular, if you are threatened with infringement proceedings, or believe that your design rights are being infringed, we can advise you and act on your behalf in any infringement proceedings, including finding commercial solutions for you through alternative dispute resolution.
