IP Litigation & Strategy

Skip to Russia content


Russia is a market of many opportunities. However, it can so be a minefield for those who want to promote and protect their IP assets. You need lawyers who can both: helping you to avoid infringements and robustly defending you when they do occur.

Intellectual property litigation and strategy is a core strength of our Russian office. Our professionals have been protecting innovators' rights for many years, and can work with you to provide legal strategies that meet your business objectives.

From 'bet the company' IP litigation to the smallest skirmish, we can help you to deliver results that protect your innovation and investment.

Although based in Moscow, we cover the entire CIS region (all former USSR countries) by either filing directly via our own Eurasian attorneys or through the network of our carefully selected foreign associate firms.

Our legal and litigation professionals represent clients in virtually all industry sectors, and have extensive experience of enforcing and protecting IP rights in Russian courts, at the antimonopoly authorities, and with various governmental law enforcement agencies including customs.

Because we've practised IP law in Russia for over twenty years, we hold an unparalleled understanding of the market. Aside from providing world class IP litigation advice, we can also help co-ordinate any support you may require in other legal areas, including complex M&A transactions and corporate litigation matters.
