Design means more than a ‘look’. It means function, usability, innovation, recognition – and value. And your investment in it deserves the best possible protection.
Regarding design as a unique and precious discipline, we don’t conflate it with either patents or brands. Instead, we’re holistic from the outset, seeing your product designs through the expert eyes of our dedicated and skilled legal team.
Working with you to understand your design ethos, we’ll forge a strategy that protects your design IP internationally, in sectors as diverse as fashion and medical devices, in all your key markets, and at all points of the product lifecycle.
