Your designs are valuable. Protect them.
Design patents protect thinkers and inventors from others who would copy the design of a manufactured article. These patents specifically protect unique configurations, shapes, and overall appearances of manufactured pieces. That includes external ornamentation if it is inseparable from the manufactured item.
Anywhere in the world and in many fields, product designs are valuable and protectable. Our attorneys have experience obtaining design patent protection for both domestic and international clients in a wide variety of jurisdictions. Our knowledge and expertise facilitate the preparation and filing of design applications customized to address the particular requirements of and enforcement of design patent rights in your particular country.
