Shoe Expertise Services

Expert Witness Service

Antoinette Designs offers unrivalled footwear expertise and experience backed up by one of the largest international footwear related archives of shoe designs, trade journals, magazines, photographs, components and materials.

The archive is vital in providing prior art/evidence used to resolve intellectual property and Patent disputes. This teamed with extensive expertise, footwear trade knowledge and our reputation for keeping to estimated completion dates gives our clients the best results.

The majority of cases are settled out of Court however we have testified at the Royal Courts of Justice, London and the Presiding Judge took the unusual step of commenting on the Expert Witnesses in the case, therefore our evidence/ability in Court is well documented.
