Our patent department offers clients a superior service across a diverse range of technologies.

Our Patent Attorneys and Experts are grouped into the following four departments:

Biotechnology & Life Sciences
Chemistry & Pharmaceuticals
Electronics, Electrical Engineering & Telecommunications
Mechanics and Medical Technology

The boundaries are fluid, however, and cooperation between experts with different specialities is often required to meet the needs of clients with more complex intellectual property.

We understand the value that patents give to a company, and always aim not only to protect the time and money invested in research and development and provide a genuine business asset, but also to create a perfect Intellectual Property Rights strategy for our client, expanding the value of his innovative ideas.

We believe that a well-developed, comprehensive IPR strategy, including timely registration and monitoring of IPR, not only raises the competitiveness of a company, but also avoids many possible complications connected with enforcing the IPR in the market.

PATENTICA acts before the Russian Patent and Trademark Office (ROSPATENT) and the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO), and also works in close cooperation with our associates in other CIS countries to file and prosecute patent applications in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. We also file a considerable number of International (PCT) patent applications, which are a popular option for clients who wish to pursue patent protection initially in a large number of countries worldwide through a single application.

We deal with drafting, filing and prosecuting patent applications, as well as preparing and registering assignments and licenses, filing and defending oppositions, and dealing with the renewal of patents. The practitioners in our patents group also have significant experience of attending patent disputes at the Chamber of Patent Disputes of the Russian Patent Office, and also court cases.

Additionally, we offer a range of advice-based services, such as freedom-to-operate searches, patentability searches, IP due diligence, TM watching services, IP strategy consulting and others.

We participate in a number of technology transfer groups and offer our clients in academic and research institutions comprehensive help in finding possible investors in their business and qualified advice at every stage, from provisional patent filings to the signing of valuable transfer deeds.
