I began my IP career working as an Examiner in the Russian Patent Office. From there I moved to an international law firm and qualified as a Russian and Eurasian Patent Attorney. I have experience with the full lifecycle of IP management including preparation, prosecution and assertion of patents and industrial design rights. I particularly enjoy drafting and prosecuting patent applications with a focus on Russia, Eurasia and other CIS countries. I have also participated in litigation trials before the Russian Chamber for Patent Disputes and the Russian Courts, which helped me develop a more rounded skill-set and improve the quality of my patents.
I am looking forward to becoming a European Patent Attorney, as my goal is to provide the best IP protection for clients worldwide. NLO is the perfect place to achieve this goal as we have a great team of professionals with experience from a diverse set of patent systems. We work together to spot new opportunities to establish proprietary positions and to implement strategies to strengthen clients’ IP portfolios.
