IPS is a full-service Russian and Eurasian IP protection firm providing prosecution and enforcement services. We have a team of patent and trademark attorneys with over 10 years of experience. Our founding partners originate from Quebec, Canada and Russia and we position ourselves as a trilingual boutique firm.

Our head office is located in St-Petersburg with two satellite offices in Moscow, Russia and Montreal, Canada.

Our expertise includes prosecution of patents, utility models, industrial designs, trademarks, service marks and appellations of origin in Russia and Eurasia, where applicable.

From 2013 to 2017, we were the leading patent drafting and prosecution service provider for the Russian IT sector. Top local companies entrusted us with helping them strategically build valuable patent portfolios consisting of patent family members worldwide.

We represent clients before Russian courts in IP matters. In 2017, we have successfully represented local clients in key patent litigation cases in the pharma and biotech industry against both ROSPATENT and commercial entities.

Our other practice includes IP due diligence for merger and acquisition deals that we prepare for investment funds and multinational corporations that are interested in buying small and mid-sized businesses. For these matters we perform freedom-to-operate analysis, patentability searches and risk assessments associated with tech transfers and competitor licensing activities.

Having an in-house patent and trademark search, drafting, prosecution and translation professionals enables us to control the quality of our services, keep down costs and, most importantly, keep all information confidential, as we do not employ third party outsourcers that may simultaneously work for several IP firms.

Our team believes in providing timely and simple professional advice. Our strength is sharing with Russian companies our foreign legal expertise and with foreign companies our Russian and Eurasian legal expertise. We find that the art of practicing intellectual property law is being able to constantly fine tune our services to keep the clients happy.

Our mission is outstanding solutions.
