Not every new product contains a patentable invention, but most new products contain novel designs which make them stand out from the competition. This novelty is achieved by hard work and one does not want others to get benefit out of his work. The ability to protect and capitalize on innovation is becoming crucial for sustaining business growth and profitability, this is why registration of designs is becoming more and more common every day.
The concept of registration of designs is still new to Pakistani businesses and even foreign multinationals have only recently started acquiring protection for their designs in Pakistan, therefore, there are not many law firms in Pakistan having ability and experience to handle design applications.
However, despite this rarity of design applications, Meer & Hasan has been filing design applications since many years. Meer & Hasan is perhaps the leading law firm in Pakistan in terms of filing design applications. We render opinions as to design strategy, application filing and prosecution. We provide advice to clients who are preparing to invest in new products on the strength and the scope of the designs involved. We also render opinions for clients who may have been accused of infringement of designs.
