DESIGN LAW


Protecting the appearance and design of your products !



We support you in protecting your industrial designs at every stage of product development: obtaining the rights with the offices, assisting you in their commercial use, drawing up the agreements that protect you and defending your rights in administrative proceedings or before the competent courts.

Administrative litigation before EUIPO

We defend your interests before the offices (EUIPO) by filing invalidity actions against registered designs violating your rights and/or by representing you in such proceedings.

Registered design litigation in France and internationally

We will represent you in the event of pre-litigation or legal actions before the Courts, whether as plaintiff (action for invalidity and/or design infringement) or as defendant. At the start of the case, we manage the specific fact-finding measures in this area: the saisie-contrefaçon, to obtain evidence of the infringement of your rights. Our network of international correspondents also enables us to defend your rights all over the world.

Obtaining rights

We file your designs with the INPI, EUIPO and/or WIPO (or locally through our international network of correspondents). We also carry out design searches to identify any prior rights of third parties and to ensure the novelty of your design.

Managing your rights

Our in-house managers monitor and manage your registered designs on a daily basis. They’ll remind you of the various deadlines for extending and renewing them, as well as on other matters.

Agreements

We assist you in negotiating and drafting agreements concerning the commercial use of your designs (licence agreements, regulation of co-ownership).

Exploitation

In the event of new projects, and in order not to risk an action for infringement of designs by third parties, we can carry out a freedom to operate analysis which makes it possible to identify possible blocking (third party) rights.

Monitoring

On your behalf, we monitor local and global registries to detect any possible violation of your rights or for competitive intelligence.
