Intellectual Property

Integrites team of Intellectual Property practice demonstrates a unique and efficient combination of understanding the international principles of guaranteeing intellectual property rights and practical experience of protecting these rights. 

We aspire to manage the risks related to infringement of the rights to intellectual property objects of our clients and minimize such risks in order to increase the value and attractiveness of client's business. Transnational corporations come to us for legal assistance in such spheres as medicine and pharmaceuticals, finance and investment, information technologies and telecommunications.

In view of the growing competition in the key economic sectors and consequently the growing number of violations in the sphere of intellectual property, companies come to us for legal assistance on the issues related to fighting illegal use of intellectual property rights objects (IPROs), unlawful use of copyright objects, failure to pay royalties and/or reimbursement for damages caused by use of copyright objects, import of counterfeit products to the territory of Ukraine, as well as the issues aimed at minimizing the risk of non-payment for the use of IPROs, and minimizing the risk of buying “problematic” IPROs.

Our team of intellectual property practice participated as a legal adviser in a number of complex cases related to the transfer of ownership and the right to use IPRs, conducting of the IPRO due diligence, providing legal support concerning access of foreign companies to genetic resources of plants in the CIS, opportunities for genetic material exports, as well as protection of intellectual property rights to plant species, protection of copyright, including those in the Internet, termination of the copyright violations by the third parties, and the fight against counterfeits in the CIS markets. 

Due to the vast geography of Integrites presence, its strong legal composition, international and industry-specific experience of the intellectual property team, we can quickly and efficiently provide full legal support in Ukraine and in the CIS states taking into account foreign legislation in the sphere of intellectual property regulation. When supporting our clients’ activities on a daily basis, we monitor significant changes and trends in the sectors where their businesses are operating, provide expert legal conclusions and recommendations thus helping them to avoid financial losses.  

The team of lawyers in the intellectual property practice has successful experience of interaction with the State Service of Ukraine on Intellectual Property, antitrust authorities, and actively participates in introducing legislative initiatives on regulation of protection of intellectual property rights and fight against unfair competition. 

The issues related to protection of intellectual property rights often overlap with antitrust regulation, thus IP right holders often turn to the lawyers of the Antitrust and Competition practice for support.
