Obtaining grant of registered design can be a time-consuming and sometimes expensive process, but litigation can be even more costly. Mistakes must be avoided at all costs then, and Adams & Adams has more collective experience than any other law firm in Africa – particularly in dealing with applications and the defence of registered designs across the globe.
The Patent team of Adams & Adams can guide you the maze of design application facts and potential challenges or objections:
- Determining the registribility of designs
- Drafting and filing of design and patent applications
- Restoration of design registrations
- Revocation of design registrations
- Voluntary surrender of design registrations
- Amendments to design registrations
