Design Rights

Our expertise covers all aspects relating to the protection of design, licensing of design rights, and litigation, especially design infringement litigation.

We advise our clients in defining the protectable features or combination of features in the appearance of their products and assist them in the filing of French and Community designs before the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) and the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM).

We also assist them in drafting and negotiating design transfer and license agreements.


We assess the quality of their protection, in particular in the framework of audits (due diligence) on the occasion of mergers and acquisitions.

We analyze the policy and strategy of their competitors and, if need be, coordinate and implement the measures necessary to obtain freedom to operate.

We represent and assist our clients in opposition proceedings and before courts in design infringement and nullity proceedings.

Perpetual motion with light bulbs.
