The protection of design is an important focal point of our practice. Particularly for our clients in the furniture, sports goods, fashion, toy, food, automotive and luxury goods industries, we have developed an unrivalled level of expertise in the field of protection of product design. Effective litigation and advice in this area requires in-depth knowledge and broad experience in the field of copyright law, design protection, trade mark law and unfair competition law. The overlap and collision of these widely varying legal concepts and laws – each with its own specific set of possibilities and pitfalls – are what makes the protection of design highly complex and challenging. If there is one field in which we have consistently proven that our craftsmanship and creative approach contributes to effective and efficient solutions, this is it.
