Your European design patent application – Patworx patent attorneys

Registering a European design patent at the EUIPO is relatively simple – but there are some points that you should considered. Take advantage of the experience of our European design attorneys to protect your design patent in Europe. Before filing your EU design patent application, our design attorneys will clarify the following issues with you:

  1. Can I file additional designs of alternative embodiments in a single application?
  2. Which and how many different views of each design model do I have to file, and how do I draft an appropriate classification?
  3. Do I possibly infringe earlier design rights in Europe? Can I achieve a registration of the design at all?

If you have any questions regarding a certain European design patent application or the proper classification, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be pleased to answer your questions as soon as we know about the details of your design patent application. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

European design patent application – things to keep in mind

Before applying for a EU design patent, you should always search for earlier designs which may possibly oppose your own application. The European IP Office does not conduct any design searches in advance. Therefore, there is a considerable risk that an owner of an earlier design will object to your design application or send you a warning letter. This may lead to the cancellation of your design, a claim for injunctive relief or a claim for compensation of damages. By means of a professional design search, you can significantly reduce this risk of a legal collision with earlier rights. This is significantly cheaper than the cost of a warning letter or a change of your product. Let us provide you with our advice. Our European trademark attorneys will be happy to assist you.
