I wish to express my sincere thanks to Adrian Hocking, Partner at Albright Patents LLP as well as his Personal Assistant, Ms. Lynne Horton. As an overseas client, I can truly say that both Adrian and Lynne were extremely supportive throughout my patent applications process. I particularly found Adrian to be diligent, tenacious, clear, concise, commercially aware, patient and extremely easy to communicate with. As a result of the support of Adrian and Lynne, I have successfully obtained two patents. I am truly grateful for all of their efforts and I fully intend using the services of Albright Patents again within the not-so-distant future.

What happens if other countries join the EU?
This is called enlargement. The design protection will automatically extend to the new countries.
How do I apply for Copyright and Design Right protection?
Copyright and Design Right protection is automatic on creating a work or design. However, you should register your design for increased protection and longer term protection.
I have already disclosed my designs. Can I still file a valid design registration?
Possibly in the UK, Europe and the US, depending on when you disclosed. Why not give us a call...
