Design Protection Legal Services

It is possible to stop a third party copying your designs, even if you have not registered them. However, the protection afforded to designs can be increased substantially by registering them. For example, registering designs can increase the duration of protection from just two years to as much as 25 years.

For more information regarding our design protection legal services, please contact Doug Locke on 0117 314 5602.

How can we help you to protect your designs?

Our experienced team of intellectual property lawyers can advise you on all aspects of design protection, with transparency on fees and competitive rates. We can also assist you if you find that your designs are being infringed, or if you are challenged for design infringement by a third party.

We can also prepare design licences and assignments to help you generate maximum return from the use of your designs.

The advice they give is excellent and they are extremely easy to work with.
