We work alongside designers and brand owners to protect and enforce the look of their products, packaging and get-up, advising 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 European Union (EU) and in filing design applications through the International system (“Hague System”). Working with our network of carefully chosen overseas attorneys, we also obtain protection for our clients’ designs around the world, including obtaining design patents in the US. With our specialist knowledge of the differences in design laws around the world and how designs interact with other forms of IP, we are able help our clients secure the best protection they can 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. We have a number of attorneys who are qualified to act in design related matters before the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court (IPEC) and the High Court in the UK.
