Design rights offer the ability to
protect the physical appearance of an item and provide registered
protection for up to 25 years. The correct filing and management of
design rights is key to businesses involved in product development
and sales and is an important business asset.
As part of our IP registration and
management services we provide registration services in the UK and
the EU together with re-registration of existing rights in Guernsey
and Jersey. In addition, we are able to file design rights in other
countries through our extensive associate network.
Through our portfolio management
services, we actively manage existing design rights and advise on
their ownership and general commercial exploitation. We provide
protection for those clients wishing to hold unregistered design
rights, through our depository services.
