Your German Partner for IP Prosecution, Litigation and Consulting in Europe
Protect the shape and design of your products

File a German or European design application

Designs protect the external appearance of your products and are often referred to as design patents.

If no patent protection is possible or desired for your product, a registered design may be effective. It allows you to take action against plagiarism of your products for up to 25 years from the date of filing.
Our approach

Transparent, fair and intelligible

Patent and trademark attorneys prepare your design application with a foresighted eye on novelty and individuality. However, these are not examined by the Office when the application is filed, so that the quality of the application only becomes apparent in the event of a dispute in court. By having your application examined by a lawyer in advance, you avoid expensive legal disputes and secure your product in the long term.
