A design is the appearance of a product: its shape, patterns, and colours. Owning a design gives you and your competitors a clear indication of what has been designed by you and when it was done.
MERX attorneys can perform thorough design clearance searches to ensure that your product design doesn’t infringe on the rights of other companies.
We will also assist with its prosecution before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and before the Spanish national Patent and Trademark Office. Our team can help you with artwork and all you need to prepare your design’s application. It doesn’t matter what your product is – furniture, garments, consumer goods, packaging – we can protect your designs efficiently and with a cost-sensitive perspective.
