Ukraine regained its independence with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991. After Russia, it is the second largest country in Europe in terms of territory and is where Europe and Asia meet.
Patents can only be protected in Ukraine by filing an application with the Ukrainian Patent Office because, although the country is a signatory of the PCT, it is not a signatory of the Eurasian or European Patent Convention. Trademarks and designs can also be protected through international registration.
Through our team in Kiev, which is currently made up of 4 patent and trademark attorneys, 2 lawyers and 6 administrators, we have been offering our clients direct representation before national offices and courts and individual advice in all areas of industrial property protection in Ukraine without the cost of an intermediary since 1999.
