Ellex Raidla successfully represented Segway Inc in a dispute related to product design

We represented the leading innovator of personal transportation Segway Inc in a dispute concerning a breach of Segway’s registered product design rights against the local company Lara Invest OÜ.
Segway designs, develops and manufactures personal self-balancing electronic devices for consumers and businesses. It offers patrollers for law enforcement and private security agencies for patrol of indoor and outdoor environments:  wooded trails, construction sites, and city sidewalks.
In 2015 Ninebot strategically merged with Segway, headquartered in Bedford, US. The combined company focuses on the research and development, design, manufacturing, distribution and sales of short-distance transportation products.
The design of Segway personal transporters is registered in the European Union Intellectual Property Office.
