Registered Design Protection

We will guide you through the identification of protectable designs, the options for securing protection appropriate for your business, and the subsequent application procedures for obtaining design protection at home and overseas. We also advise in relation to generation of a portfolio of registered designs that provides strategic protection for your important products.

We are here to help you through every stage by making this process as smooth and straightforward for you as possible. The most important aspects of our role are:

• Advising you whether a particular design is likely to meet the requirements for registration, and the breadth of protection that would be provided by registering that design.

• Advising in relation to the design drawings, in respect of achieving the appropriate balance between breadth of protection and validity of the registration, and satisfying formal requirements of different territories

• Filing the registered design application, and steering the application to registration

After a design has been registered, we assist with the maintenance of the registered design and advise on its enforcement should the registered design be infringed by a competitor.

We will also help you build and manage an effective portfolio of registered designs, which provides cost effective and strategic protection for your business. Our regular contact with you and your business will enable us to continually monitor whether the protection strategy adopted meets your evolving needs, to ensure that you maximise your commercial advantage.
