Design can have a profound
impact on the commercial
success of your product and
business. It makes good
business-sense to legally
protect, what may be, the
only distinguishing feature.

Design applications you can depend on.

At Platform IP we will expertly manage every element of your design application, from adapting and iterating your design for your best chances at success, through to filing throughout jurisdictions all over the world, ongoing management, renewal and enforcement, and advising on potential changes to your product’s design over time.

If we determine that your design is similar in part to an existing product, we can also file a Statement of Newness and Distinctiveness together with your application. This statement emphasises the particular features of your design which should be considered new and distinctive in accordance with design registration principles and known existing products.

Throughout the application preparation process our attorneys will also expertly guide you through design legislation so that you are fully aware about where you stand, every step of the way.

We advise clients on strategies for total design protection, and deliver advice that is driven their particular commercial needs.
