Design relates to the overall appearance of a product (ie the shape, configuration or pattern) which gives it a unique appearance. It must be both new and distinctive.

The design of a product is one of the key important aspects of a product’s success. It is important for every entrepreneur or business to safeguard a design by having it registered. When you register a design, you are provided with the exclusive right to use the design in the marketplace. Registration establishes your ownership in the intellectual property of the design.

Our Intellectual Property team assists clients in relation to every step of registering a design both domestically and internationally.
