Sojuzpatent is the oldest leading law firm providing IP protection services in Russia and the former Soviet Union. Sojuzpatent’s team of over 160 qualified specialists includes 50 registered Russian and Eurasian patent and trademark attorneys and litigation lawyers offering incisive and highly practical expertise in all disciplines of science and technology.
The name Sojuzpatent comes from the word ‘sojuz’ or ‘soyuz’ meaning ‘union’. The name ‘Sojuz’ is traditionally associated with cooperation and friendship.
During the Soviet era, Sojuzpatent was the only organisation of patent attorneys in the country and the only entity authorised to deal with foreign entities on IP protection matters. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Sojuzpatent became a limited liability partnership owned by its attorneys.
Throughout its nearly 100-year evolution, Sojuzpatent’s main goal has always been the provision of IP rights protection in Russia and other states – for both domestic and foreign applicants. Its decades of cooperation with the Russian Trademark and Patent Office, the Russian Academy of Sciences, international trade organisations and industrial enterprises have given Sojuzpatent a unique depth of experience in all IP matters. Over the years, Sojuzpatent has developed long-lasting relations with many world-known companies. Particularly, Sojuzpatent continues to renew some trademarks that were first registered as long ago as in the 1920’s.
Sojuzpatent has established its reputation within the international IP community, developing trusted connections with leading law firms around the world.
Sojuzpatent is proud of its history. Our team members consistently bring the successes of the past into their daily work routines while confidently preparing for the future.
The firm’s professionals have extensive experience in trademark, patent and design prosecution and enforcement, including opposition proceedings, cancellations, infringement, anti-counterfeiting and parallel import cases, and advise on IP commercialization and other IP matters. Sojuzpatent’s lawyers successfully represent our clients before the Russian Chamber for Patent Disputes and all Russian courts, as well as before some foreign courts. Our clients represent about 90 countries around the Globe and include Fortune 500 companies, academic research institutions, governments and municipalities, start-ups, and individual inventors.
Sojuzpatent uses customised software that allows for keeping track of various sorts of deadlines, taking into consideration every client’s specific requirements, ensuring transparent and timely billing, processing big volumes of IP data.
