Our team understands the importance of showing the uniqueness of your product to the world. We know that your team has worked hard to build something amazing: your new product design.

GatesIP will ensure that your design is yours and only yours, without any third-party infringement standing in the way. We can be your partner to protect the appearance, shape, decorative aspect and configuration of your brand-new product and obtaining protection for up to 25 years by renewing it every 5 years.

Our team is available to provide design patent protection, including:

  • Preparing design illustrations to ensure compliance with national requirements and the Hague system.
  • Search for existing designs to report on novelty
  • Preparing opinions on patentability, freedom of use, validity, and infringement
  • Filing and prosecuting design patent applications in Switzerland, Europe and internationally
  • Enforcing design patents rights locally or anywhere around the globe together with GatesIP partnered firms
  • Design maintenance of rights worldwide
  • Design monitoring services

One of our staff members can be appointed as your expert design attorney, available to assist you in your national/European/international search, filing, examination, protection and enforcement requirements of your designs.

We offer a package approach for filing design patent applications. Our unique concept is to apply a single fee and invoice covering the preparation and filing of the various formalities required by the respective national offices where design protection is required.
