Conducting availability searches are highly recommended prior to applying for a design registration to ascertain whether a proposed design is really new or may constitute an infringement of a pre-registered design identical/similar to the proposed design. We are skilled in conducting thorough searches for identifying availability of designs in India and other countries. We accordingly advise the clients to pursue the proposed design.
We prepare representation sheets and opposition notices/responses.
