Unique design protects your success. Protect your design!

Unique design protects your success. Protect your design!

Design is often decisive for the success or failure of a product. We recommend you start thinking about design protection at the latest after the public announcement of your design. If you wait too long, design protection is no longer possible. We imagine that this is not a situation you would like to find yourself in.

Like a trademark, you can also register a design yourself with the German Patent and Trademark Office.

We recommend that you discuss the reproductions of your design with us. The submitted reproductions define the scope of protection of your design and thus determine whether you can sufficiently defend your design against approaches by third parties. Once you have filed your design, you can no longer make any changes. It therefore pays to determine the desired protection precisely in advance and to weigh up the multitude of possible representations of your design.

We will also be happy to advise you on possible protection restrictions of your design by existing third-party publications and develop the best protection strategy together with you.

We will gladly take over the registration of your design. This way you do not have to worry about paying the official fees, further correspondence with the German Patent and Trademark Office and meeting possible deadlines. We are happy to support you with this.

Once your design is registered, you have a time-limited monopoly which you can also sell or license.

Are you interested in design protection outside Germany now or in the next few years? Here, too, we will be happy to advise you and discuss the possibilities of protection via EU design, international design or national designs in various countries.

Do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to help you.
