Cabinet Flechner

Succ. A. de Carsalade de Pont

Our design and copyright work for our clients covers all aspects of industrial and design copyright. We provide advice on the protection and policing of copyright and unregistered design rights (in both France, Europe and internationally). In connection with registered designs we file and prosecute applications for registration at both the French Patent Office and OHIM (for Community Designs). All partners and associates are qualified to represent clients in Community design matters before OHIM and we welcome any enquiries you may have regarding possible French and Community Registered Design applications, or advice on Unregistered French design rights and Unregistered Community Designs, and their interaction.

We help our clients to protect their creations, by filing designs & securing copyright worldwide, working with them to find the best way of achieving this.
