Documentary research for Intellectual Property professionals


Our archivists are experts in design and trademark research

Is your design original ? 

Paperz IP helps companies and intellectual property professionals check the originality of a design before a product launch or in case of litigation, and gathers documentary evidence. But not only. Paperz IP also undertakes documentary searches in the field of trademarks.

Thanks to highly organized archives, high-tech tools and multi-media research, PAPERZ IP carries out documentary research in different business sectors (fashion, jewelry, furniture, toys, etc).

Prior art research and design dating, current market situations, trademark use investigations, brand awareness reports… IP research requests are rich and varied, and each query is unique. Thus, PAPERZ IP adjusts to each of your requests with outstanding know-how.

Take advantage of an ultra-specialized documentary collection inventoried by our expert team of archivists. In addition, we travel to museums, search the Internet, external databases and IP registers. Whether it is a clearance search (before the launching of a product) or a dispute, on a design or a trademark, we adapt our research strategy to your needs.

We are involved either before the launching of a product for clearance purposes, or as part of defense and claim proceedings.
