We protect what makes your design special

IP Prosecution - Designs

Successful marketing is often inseparable from products with a striking or memorable design. Colours, shapes, textures and contours can all be protected by a registered design.

Our attorneys have many years’ experience in design law in Germany, Europe and beyond, and will advise you on developing your design registration strategy. In close consultation with you, we draft tailored applications for designs and guide them through national and international registration procedures. In addition to registration, we also advise and support you in maintaining and building your portfolio of design rights.
