Registered designs protect the unique appearance of your products, and can provide a crucial tool for securing your distinctive reputation in the market.

The examination process for registered designs is very straightforward compared to that which applies for patent protection, so a registered design provides a quick route to secure granted rights which can be used against third parties.

An important aspect of the registration is the representations.  While a simple photograph can be used, we would recommend the preparation of professional representations, so that the scope of the design is not limited unnecessarily.

We can also advise on international protection strategies, including registration of Design Patents in the USA.

We have the tools and the experience to make sure you make fully informed IP decisions.
