PATENT & TM ATTORNEYS PRACTICE
One of the basic requirements of the Russian patent law is that an application for an invention made in Russia shall be first filed with the Russian PTO. Failure to observe such requirement may result in penalizing the offender.
Perhaps the most convenient way to observe this requirement for a foreign company having Inventors creating their innovations in Russia is filing applications for their inventions as PCT cases with the Russian PTO. Such way will also allow using either Russian PTO or the European Patent Office as International Searching Authority.
Our law firm may not only be your agent for PCT filing but assist you with national patenting in the countries neighbouring to Russia. In Ukraine, your applications will be filed and prosecuted by our own full-range subsidiary office while in other jurisdictions we will select for you the most appropriate agent from the network of our cooperating companies.
When selecting such particular company we follow the same principles that guide us when providing you services in Russia – namely, our client must be represented by a patent attorney with in-depth knowledge of, and academic qualification in the field of the invention along with sufficient expertise and a spotless business reputation.
