Consumer goods

Consumer products are integral to almost every aspect of daily life and there is invariably innovation and intellectual property in the features of each which, at first glance, may appear simple, but gives them their performance, quality or aesthetic appeal, making them more desirable or enjoyable to use.

Whether your consumer product is the alarm clock that marks the beginning of the day or the pillow on which the day ends, we can advise you on the most appropriate intellectual property protection available to protect your product in each territory in which you intend to market it.

Our patent and trade mark attorneys work together to assess all manner of products, advising whether any aspects of its method of operation, function, method of manufacture, design, shape, packaging or branding can be protected.  We also advise whether any aspect of your product risks landing you in hot water by infringing the earlier rights of others, and we have a team of lawyers able to help you with any legal issues that may arise.
