PATENTICA has had significant success in enforcing our clients’ IP rights through negotiation and mediation. However, since such measures are not always effective, we have also conducted legal action on patents, trademarks, domain names, cybersquatting, unfair competition and related issues throughout the country.

Our trial teams are comprised of attorneys who have great experience in law, technology, trademarks, copyright and relevant issues. They have litigated on a broad array of infringement matters before common courts, state arbitration courts (including trials in the High State Arbitration Court) and administrative boards. To date, scores of trademark and related cases have been conducted for various Russian and foreign companies. PATENTICA also has extensive experience with trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings before the ROSPATENT Patent Appeal Board. Attorneys in our Moscow and St. Petersburg offices represent litigant parties in civil actions, adopting a flexible approach to protecting their IP rights.

We also involve law enforcement organizations, when necessary, to promptly combat counterfeiting, and we hand over relevant information to the Russian State Customs office in order to identify and stop counterfeit merchandise. In addition, PATENTICA’s attorneys regularly counsel clients concerning possible defensive and enforcement strategies for patents, trademarks, and broader issues.
