A patent protects new inventions and how they work. If a patent application is granted, it gives the inventor the ability to take legal action to prevent others from reproducing and selling their invention without permission.
Duku are experienced in developing innovative, unique and patentable design solutions that can strengthen your patent application. Working alongside Albright IP allows us to discuss the potential patentability of any new design ideas directly with our patent attorneys from the outset of a project.
If you have a new product idea or invention, our expert attorneys can help you to secure patent rights in almost any country and will be happy to offer patent advice at any stage of the patenting process including costs, timescales and deadlines for all important phases of applying for a patent.
Registering your brand, logo or company name as a trademark strengthens and protects your position in the marketplace. Our experienced trademark attorneys will guide you through the process, providing invaluable advice to give your brand the protection it needs in the UK, Europe and beyond.
A trademark or brand name can be used to protect:
A business name
A product name
A logo for a business or product
The name of a service
Our trademark team will be happy to provide initial advice and carry out a free search of the UK Trademark Register for identical trademarks to your proposed brand name.
Registering your design safeguards the features that make your products unique and helps them stand out from the competition and can help you to stop others creating designs which are too similar to your own.
A Registered Design protects the overall visual appearance of a product. This means that protection is given to the way a product looks and can include a combination of elements such as shapes, colours and materials. As with a patent, a registered design will only be granted to an original design.
