Design Patent Law

We represent you in all design patent matters.

The design of your products may be protected by registration at the German Patent and Trademark Office, at OHIM, at WIPO and at the national Offices worldwide. But even without registration you may acquire property rights for the design of your products for a certain period of time merely by marketing your product within Europe.

The Design patent protects the details of the outer appearance of your product, e.g. any technical products such as machines, machine components, technical facilities and tools as well as fashion and jewellery designs etc.

We advise and represent you in the registration proceedings worldwide as well as in out-of court negotiations and enforcement of your design rights in court. We also defend you against third parties' infringement allegations.
