Designs – sometimes called industrial designs or a design patent – is an intellectual property right aimed at protecting the aesthetics of an industrial product. In fact, in many cases, a client will need to file both a utility patent to protect the functionality of its invention and a design patent to protect its aesthetics.
Protecting the way your product looks can often be integral to its value. A design patent allows you to protect this value. Our IP experts are well equipped to handle all aspects of protecting clients’ designs, tapping into our specialized knowledge and practical experience in the design registration process and an in-depth understanding of the broadest range of industries.
