Trademarks can be powerful instruments for promoting goods on the market. The right to use and register trademarks ensures legal protection of financial and intellectual investments, and ensures consumer recognition and trust.

Overview

ARS-Patent includes a group of attorneys, who have an extensive experience in trademark protection and practice. We assist our clients in developing and implementing applications and agreements to
register and enforce trademarks and service marks. We are readily available to advise our clients on their trademark selection and usage, while helping to avoid conflicts and instances of infringement with other marks. In trademarks, ARS-Patent provides a wide variety of
services, most significantly in:

  • conducting partial and full prior art searches;
  • registration of domestic and foreign trademarks with the Federal Service for Intellectual Property, Patents and Trademarks (“Rospatent”), including expedited proceedings
  • negotiating and drafting licenses, assignments and other agreements;
  • international registration of trademarks, by utilizing the Madrid Agreement and Madrid Protocol system;
  • obtaining ownership of registered and pending trademarks;
  • maintaining domestic and foreign trademark registration portfolios, especially for reinstatement of a trademark patent or application;
  • prosecuting and defending our clients’ interests in trademark oppositions, appeals, cancellations and infringement actions;
  • representation of our clients [in inter partes and ex partes matters] before the Chamber for Patent Disputes.

Our in-depth knowledge spans every aspect of trademark law. Our practice-oriented professionals have extensive trademark experience, and therefore, are able to help our clients avoid difficulties and predicaments by providing practical advice, timely assistance in negotiations of agreements, and committed representation in the courts.
ARS-Patent’s attorneys are proficient in selecting and obtaining the maximum scope of rights for trademarks and domain names, and know the most effective means for defending and challenging such rights in the courts.

Trademark searches

Before filing a trademark application, our firm offers extensive prior art searches in international and Russian databases of registered trademarks and service marks, in order to check if a planned trademark or service mark is in fact available for use. On the basis of prior art searches, our skilled professionals and attorneys provide our clients with a detailed legal opinion. Upon our client’s request, if a service mark or a trademark is registered in the Russian Federation, we can contact third parties who possess prior rights in order to obtain coexistence agreements and thus negotiate freedom to use that mark in the Russian Federation market.

Due to our geographic proximity to the Russian Patent and Trademark Office and our modern facilities, we have direct access to official trademark search systems used by PTO examiners.

Instead of full prior-art searches, preliminary trademark searches can also be conducted through our internal system, in order to examine potential words or phrases. We can usually complete these searches the day after we receive a client’s instructions and at a cost lower than that of a full prior art search.
