We are Stibbe Design specialists

We work closely with our clients to really understand every detail of the design, their position in the market and that of their competitors. We then support them in every legal area that is required.


We have years of practical experience in design procedures, combining a thorough knowledge of copyright and Benelux and community design law, with a commercial and pragmatic approach.

Our expert team draws on its experience within this area to provide a comprehensive service to clients, acting on matters ranging from complex licensing matters to assistance in contentious disputes.

We understand the commercial pressures our clients are under regarding the copying of designs. Consequently, we guide and assist our clients through all complex issues relating to copyright infringement, the contractual aspects of design law, and the infringement of registered and unregistered community designs.

Furthermore, we successfully advise, support and represent our clients in all stages of judicial proceedings, and in all domains of design protection.
