The ability to protect the appearance of original products can be crucial to the success of a business. Whether the design is of an industrial component or is a more artistic creation, we can advise on the best way to defend it against competitors.
Is your industrial design novel? Does it have an individual character? Is it available? We will know shortly thanks to our complete searches in the most complete databases.
We prepare your industrial designs from your drawings or photos with great care on the quality of copies. We file your French, Community and International designs before the French Trademark Office (INPI), the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) or before the World Industrial Property Organization (WIPO). As registered Trademark attorneys, we act on your behalf before the Trademark offices for the filing and granting proceedings of your designs.
In America (USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, etc.) and Asia (Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc.), but also in the Middle- East (Saudi Arabia, Emirates, Israel, etc.) and Africa (Tunisia, Morocco, South Africa, etc.), we file and obtain your designs through our network of experienced partners who are present in more than 150 countries. Thanks to our reliable and modern computer system, we watch the deadlines associated with your design rights and, on your behalf, maintain your design rights by paying the renewal fees all around the world.
We help you leverage your design rights in the best fashion. We conduct the counterfeiting seizures even in your competitors’ premises. Thanks to our Attorneys at law network, we assist you before the Courts.
Do you wish to sell at least one of your designs or have it licensed? On the contrary, do you wish to buy one or more designs or own a license? We assist you during the negotiations and the drafting of the agreements.
More generally, you may sollicit us on any question regarding design matters (portfolio or single design evaluation, cumulative protection with copyright, etc.).
