Looking good? We can help you stand out – for longer.

Protecting your looks requires a ‘tailored’ strategy as in New Zealand and internationally there are conflicting and overlapping intellectual property rights.

Fortunately our Design Team understands this space and will guide you through the design rights minefield.

In particular, they can:

  • Create a design protection strategy
  • Advise you whether your design is registerable and where
  • Advise if your proposed design could conflict with the existing rights of others, and
  • Secure your ownership and control over your designs in New Zealand and internationally
