“Founded in 1975, Papula-Nevinpat is a firm fixture on the Finnish legal landscape; and with presence in another 12 jurisdictions across Eurasia, it has established itself as a centralised hub for wall-to-wall trademark services throughout the region.

Riikka Palmos efficiently registers trademarks and acts in administrative proceedings from her base at Papula-Nevinpat, where she has been resident for the last 25 years. She serves as director of the trademark department and also heads up the firm’s Russian legal team.”
