Design Searching

Before commencing use or seeking registration of a new design it is advisable to conduct a search for registered designs of the same overall impression. We can conduct registered design searches by both registered proprietor and the relevant International (Locarno) classification (an alphabetical list of goods which constitute industrial designs, with an indication of the classes and subclasses into which they fall), using our in-house specialist search team or an external search agency. After every search, we will analyse the results to assess the potential impact on any aspect of your design filing strategy.
