Protection of registered designs

Products of outstanding design and strong appearance are invaluable assets in today’s competitive business environment. Both two- and three-dimensional forms and designs of products and packaging can be protected as registered designs.

Protection of registered designs can be secured on a virtually worldwide basis. Along with nation-wide protection rights or protection within EU nations, it is possible to protect the rights to a design in a large number of countries in which various international agreements apply.

Under certain circumstances, it is also possible to protect a design as a trademark, especially if it qualifies as a three-dimensional trademark.

Our services cover preliminary research as well as the optimisation of the designs or models to be registered. We act on your behalf and/or in support of you in carrying out German and EU-cancellation proceedings.
