Design law

We protect your design idea

Design makes the difference. Whether packaging, clothing, wallpaper patterns, decorative items, pieces of furniture, screen surfaces - the manifestations of design are manifold. The patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law of our firm will advise you on the possibilities offered by design law or design patent law to protect the external appearance of your products.

In order to secure all rights to your newly developed design (registered design), ROTHKOPF employs patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law who specialize in design law. We can advise you as early as the design development stage, for example, by conducting a search of the existing design vocabulary.

The ROTHKOPF law firm will also represent you in all proceedings to obtain and enforce your design rights. At your request, we can take over the complete administration and monitoring of your design portfolio.

In design law, we provide you with individual and comprehensive support for:

  • Searches for existing design rights
  • Obtaining design rights (registered designs)
  • Cancellation proceedings
  • Expert opinions on design right infringement
  • Conducting design right infringement proceedings
  • Monitoring of design rights
  • Exploitation strategies for design rights
