Welcome to Patentica!

PATENTICA is an intellectual property law firm providing IP services in Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and around the world.

PATENTICA specialises in assisting foreign companies to secure IP protection for their products within Russia and the CIS. The potential for commercializing new products in this young and rapidly growing market is enormous, and an increasing number of new technologies, embodied in production equipment and consumer goods of all types, are being imported. Protecting development investment in innovative products is essential, but can be daunting in an unfamiliar IP environment. PATENTICA sees its main role in fulfilling the need for expert and sympathetic guidance, which it provides through its team of first-class technical and legal experts.

PATENTICA is proud of the extremely wide range of scientific and technical expertise it can offer. All our Patent Attorneys and Patent Experts are highly qualified and skilled in their particular field. We also offer first-class translation services into Russian from a variety of languages.

PATENTICA advises on procedures and represents clients before the Russian patent authority, ROSPATENT, the Eurasian Patent Organisation (set up to provide a single evaluation phase within the territory of certain CIS countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Russia), and, through our associates, before the national patent offices of the individual CIS countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. PATENTICA also works internationally, under the PCT treaty and the Madrid system. We have a broad network of international contacts with well-known law firms and patent offices worldwide. We also have considerable experience in representing clients before foreign patent authorities including the US, the UK, the Canadian, European and Japanese patent offices.

PATENTICA assists clients at all stages of development, from new market entrants planning their initial strategy for protecting their IP in Russia and the CIS, to global companies expanding their business activities in this market or wishing to strengthen their IP position. Our expertise covers patents, trademarks, utility models, industrial designs, licensing, litigation and computer program registration.

At PATENTICA, we believe in the potential of trade and commerce as a power for good in international relations and we are proud of our work in this context. We see each new patent, each trade mark and court decision we have helped to obtain for our foreign clients as a small contribution to the development of business and economic cooperation between our countries.
