Design registration is an effective means of protecting unique product designs. We have assisted a wide array of clients with the design registration process. We also help clients protect their rights by providing countervailing facts against the design applications/registrations of other companies and by filing requests for invalidation trials. We also act for clients in design infringement actions and are very experienced in responding to infringement claims brought by other companies.
