Patents

The value that patents give to a company is hard to overestimate, and we always aim not only to protect the time and money invested in research and development to provide a genuine business asset, but also to create a perfect Intellectual Property Rights strategy for our clients, expanding the value of their innovative ideas, in particular, in the Russian and Eurasian market.

Trademarks

Trademarks are keystones of any prospective IP portfolio: their individualizing capacity makes a company stand out on the market and adds up to the value of the business assets. A trademark is also the heart of each brand - the voice of any business used to communicate values, ideas and company’s unique image, be it a start-up, individual entrepreneur or a global corporation.

Industrial Designs

Products’ shapes, contours, patterns, textures and colours create a first impression and convey the company’s corporate identity. The appearance or aesthetic features are registrable as industrial designs that ensure a broader protection for newly launched goods.

Litigation

The best way to resolve a dispute is out-of-court settlement. PATENTICA has developed an effective IP enforcement approach through negotiation and mediation. However, some cases are to be brought to the court room, and we gladly represent our clients as both plaintiffs and defendants in legal actions concerning all types of intellectual property in Russia and CIS countries.
