If you're doing business in Russia, then you're likely aware that protecting patents is crucial. Rapid advances in new technologies have led to a host of unique and unprecedented challenges to securing innovation. You need lawyers who can help you to confidently stake a claim and mitigate long-term risk.

That means you need a highly skilled team of legal problem-solvers with extensive patent law experience in Russia and a history of successfully protecting and enforcing intellectual property rights.
