It is always advisable to request a professional search prior to developing a product or design concept further. This is because it can ensure that you do not inadvertently infringe other people's Design Rights, since if a prior design right similar to your proposed design exists, then defending an infringement action can prove costly [in legal fees -if the design right owner decides to take action - and / or the subsequent rebranding exercise if you have already prepared materials with the unsearched design (brochures, decor, packaging, etc)]. This means that commissioning a professional design search prior to launching a new product onto the market has real commercial benefits. Our fees for design searches begin at £75.00 (including VAT):-
Basic UK Registered Design Search £75.00
