At Dehns we can help you protect not only the technology behind your product, but also, and as equally as important, the aesthetical appearance.

Such investment often brings a high return in terms of protecting the look of the product, but how exactly can that investment be protected?

Whereas patents protect the way things work, designs protect the appearance of a product.  Designs can protect the whole of a product or a particular part of a product.  The features of the design may include its shape or its surface decoration or colours.

Under UK national law, there are two types of protection available for designs – “Unregistered” Design Right and Registered Designs. Under European law there are two equivalent forms of protection which cover the EU.

Here at Dehns we can advise on how to protect your Designs.
