Pepeliaev Group has accumulated significant experience in supplying legal services relating to intellectual property (IP) and trademark issues. This includes implementing more than 240 projects of our clients from various industries (medicine and healthcare, FMCG, construction and real estate, energy, information technologies and others).

Pepeliaev Group employs a close-knit team of specialists, including patent attorneys, who supply legal services associated with purchasing, disposing of and protecting IP rights.

The lawyers from our specialised practice group are regularly invited to conferences, including those held abroad, while they are also published in the business media, engaged in academic work, and honoured in international ratings (Chambers Global, Chambers Europe, Legal 500, WTR 1000 and others). They are involved in legal and business associations (CCI, AEB, INTA), as well as participating in refining legislation (the Federation Council, the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission, Rospatent, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Sport and others), and in the practice of law enforcement (Rospatent, the Advisory Committee of newly established Russian Court of Intellectual Property – the “IP Court”).

In addition to the above, we have vast working experience, an in-depth understanding of IP-specific issues, and work in conjunction with other practice groups in the firm and with international partners who are members of the Terralex global association of law firms. All this allows us to tailor a specific approach to every client and to solve even the most complicated issues.
