I recently had the pleasure of working with Joel Weston on what initially... seemed like a minor IPO issue, but it evolved into a comprehensive co-existence agreement with another company. I can’t express enough how much I valued Joel’s expertise, depth of knowledge, and meticulous guidance throughout this process. It was more than just legal advice; for me, it was akin to an enlightening crash course in IP law!read more

This is the system governing the registration of international designs. The international design registration system is administered by the World Intellectual Property Organisation in Geneva. As of 9th October 2017, there were 66 Contracting States party to the system, though the UK is not yet one of them (although it is envisaged that the UK will join in the near future). The advantage of the system is that an applicant can apply for design registration in a large number of countries in a single application, in one language and with one set of fees to pay.

Whilst the UK remains part of the EU, UK residents and businesses are still entitled to apply for design registration via the Hague System by virtue of the EU being party to the system.
