Asia IP Magazine: Kazakhstan creates roadmap for IP improvement

17.1.2022

Our trademark attorney Annikki Hämäläinen was interviewed for a piece in the Asia IP Magazine about Kazakhstan to create a roadmap for IP improvement.

“The Road Map is a plan aimed to improve further the field of IP in Kazakhstan. The objective is to increase the level of expertise and make it attractable to the business,” said Annikki Hämäläinen, trademark attorney at Papula Nevinpat in Helsinki. Hämäläinen handles foreign trademark registrations, infringement and counterfeit cases, among others, in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States which includes Kazakhstan.

“We see that the plan will have a huge impact on the development of IP rights in Kazakhstan. The possibility of implementing a special IP Court will increase the IP awareness. The measures for subsidizing international patenting should help local inventors,” Hämäläinen added.
