Design law

Design law

We help large and smaller companies to protect their (product) designs. Design rights offer various possibilities. Often there are areas of overlap with copyrights, trademarks and unfair competition (slavish imitation). If needed, we litigate to safeguard or enforce our clients’ design rights. We also represent parties trying to prevent or rebut the infringement of someone else’s rights. Some of these cases take place in the Netherlands while others concern different European countries. In cross-border cases we co-operate with lawyers from our extensive international network.
