PRACTICE

Designs

GLP is specialized in protecting designs and models, which allows our Clients to protect the external appearance of the goods they intend to produce.

GLP is able to use its know-how, the fruit of years of consultancy, in a wide range of fields ranging from fashion, furnishing, automobiles, electronic devices and many many more.

The consultancy given to our Clients by our attorneys ranges from assessing the protectability of a design or model, filing the title on a European, Italian and international level, and includes a continuous surveillance of the title and an economic assessment thereof.

Consultancy extends to a pre-filing analysis intended to limit, as far as possible, any overlapping with prior art documents. It also includes filing strategies intended not only to optimize the protection in the territory, but also to limit grant procedures which, in some countries, are particularly expensive.
