Lidings supports the ХIV IP Forum in Moscow

Lidings acted as partner and sponsor of the 14th IP Forum organized by Infor-media Russia. The event, aimed at bringing together leading representatives in the field of IP to discuss current legislative framework and important recent trends in its development, took place at Mercure Paveletskaya hotel in Moscow on the 20th and 21st of March.

Sergey Patrakeev, partner in the corporate and M&A practice at Lidings, acted as a moderator of two key discussions on the opening day of the event. The panel session included keynote speeches from the representatives of Russian state authorities and the following session entitled “Managing rights to IP assets: Russian and International Experience” offered the stage to leaders of the business elite. Experts shared their views on the most pressing issues in the sphere of IP regulation and presented case studies for review and discussion with the audience.

“At the forum we managed to discuss some very important IP-related issues which representatives of the business sector are currently facing in Russia. We discussed registration of trademarks and patents, risks arising from the withdrawal of the Russian trademark in a foreign jurisdiction, optimal procedures and timing for patenting, best practices and ways to protect IP assets in Russia and a number of other equally relevant topics"- Sergey Patrakeev commented. “Lidings offers comprehensive legal assistance in relation to management and protection of intellectual property.
