Our Activities

Santarelli’s attorneys design strategies for protecting, defending and utilizing your intellectual property rights in France and throughout the world.


Santarelli provides a full range of services for the protection of Designs.
A first step is to establish with each client a protection strategy, with or without involving design registration. This in particular involves studying the nature of the creation, the aspects susceptible of being protected, choosing the means for protection through registration, and the type of applications in the countries concerned.

Adaptive Protection of Design

Applications may be made in the various countries, via different organizations depending on the geographical region concerned:

  • National protection: application to the national offices (French and foreign),
  • Community protection: application to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO),
  • International protection: application to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

A mission to Advise

Santarelli’s attorneys liaise with clients to advise them of the progress through examination of their applications, and advise them of the available options, until possible grant.
In this their specialist legal and technical knowledge is the key.
