Watching services

We review all of the new Trademarks published by the Russian PTO and notify our clients of Trademarks, which we consider, are of unfair competition. Cancellation proceedings can then be prosecuted before the Board of Appeals and the Higher Patent Chamber. When the patentability of our clients’ Trademark or Service Mark is under question, our attorneys are highly experienced in litigating against any infringements.

Trademarks and Domain names

We assist our clients in the acquisition, transfer and maintenance of second and third level domain names. Timely registration, especially for Trademark owners of legitimate and registered marks is vitally important due to the absence of any effective legislation regulating the use and misuse of domains.

Domain name and online intellectual property protection services include
• Expedited registration of domain names as Trademarks
• Challenging or mediating with and, where appropriate, negotiating with domain name squatters and infringers
• Challenging or mediating with and, where appropriate, representing clients before the Courts, antimonopoly and administrative bodies.

We can also register your Intellectual Property in the Federal Service for Intellectual Property, Patents and Trademarks provide you with the following rights
• Identification of infringers and grey market companies and individuals
• Control of unauthorised distribution channels and shipments
• Prevention of the occurrence of infringement during the import to or export from Russia
