Papula-Nevinpat introduces Legal Team Russia

25.5.2020

Papula-Nevinpat has already for many years been providing full legal services in Russia in addition to our IP services including patent, utility model, trademark and design rights protection.

“Papula-Nevinpat’s legal services can be divided into three stages,” says Ms Riikka Palmos, Head of Legal Team Russia and Director of Trademark Department at Papula-Nevinpat.

“To be successful in IP enforcement in Russia, deep knowledge and experience is needed”, continues Riikka Palmos.

In the first stage, before filing a legal action, we provide various investigations and clarifications, specifically tailored for each case. Further, we draft and send cease and desist or warning letters to third parties and responses to such communications.

The second stage typically consists of preparing and filing legal actions and taking care of the proceedings, including hearings held by the local authorities.

Post-litigation is the third stage which may include enforcing the decision (e.g. legal costs) and/or monitoring whether the counterparty fulfills its obligations.

Our Legal Team Russia provides the following services:

  • Cease and desist letters
  • Warning letters
  • Litigation; infringement actions, cancellation actions
  • Domain name disputes
  • Company name disputes
  • FAS – Federal Antimonopoly Service proceedings
  • Customs registrations
  • Customs seizures
  • Agreement drafting – amicable settlement agreements, assignment agreements, license agreements
  • Negotiations
  • Legal consulting
  • Strategy and risk assessment

The members of Legal Team Russia are based in Helsinki, St. Petersburg and Moscow.
