Intellectual Property Law

Lately the popularity and value of immaterial assets have been continuously increasing. The main reason for this is the specific character of objects of the immaterial world. Firstly, their performance is the result of a creative process. Secondly, due to its paramount ‘immateriality’, protection of the rights of the authors of the above objects has its own specific character. And thirdly the value of such objects has a different nature among other property values, and it is difficult to appraise their real cost. The above factors cause numerous peculiarities of legal regulation in this sphere.

The main focuses of our legal assistance are:

  • Obtaining protection documents
  • Protection of:
    • copyright and adjacent rights
    • rights of trade marks, trade names, trade symbols, service marks, goods origin signs
    • rights of inventions, utility models, industrial designs
    • rights of domain names
    • rights of commercial secrets
    • personal data
    • intellectual property rights within the World Wide Web
    • businesses against unfair competition
  • Use of objects of intellectual property rights in advertising
  • Drafting and concluding agreements on the disposition of property rights
  • Consulting on issues of taxation of operations, relating to the use of objects of the intellectual property right
  • Concluding of franchise/commercial concession agreements
  • Representation in courts and other state authorities
