Our expertise in defending and pursuing claims relating to ownership, validity and infringement of design rights is what keeps you and your designs safe.

Although often an unrecognised area of IP law, design rights have seen significant developments over the past few years and we understand how important this can be to our clients. Traditionally, registered rights have been relatively easy to obtain but often harder to maintain. We work hard to simplify the protection strategy for businesses given the numerous overlapping design rights that may apply to any one given situation.

Our team have significant experience covering many different sectors, including homewares, fashion accessories, clothing and other manufactured products.
