We perform national and international database searches to determine the registrability of a designation, then prepare a legal opinion on the registrability of each design. In order to obtain protection we prepare and file industrial design applications with the Polish Patent Office (PPO), EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). After obtaining protection for an industrial design we monitor deadlines for payments of renewal fees in Poland and abroad and request changes and updates to be applied in the relevant registers. In case of a violation of an industrial design’s exclusive right and/or an act of unfair competition:
- we prepare cautionary letters,
- we provide a mediation service and assist with negotiations in order to reach an amicable settlement,
- we conduct litigation before patent offices, the Court of Justice of the European Union or conduct civil, criminal or administrative proceedings.
