Despite some high-profile personnel departures, AEQUO remains a potent force on the Ukrainian patent market. Newly co-headed by Nataliya Dryuk, it tackles the full range of contentious and non-contentious patent work, from Supreme Court litigation to the development and implementation of prosecution and filing strategies and the negotiation of IP-related deals and joint ventures. The team of eight patent attorneys and lawyers executes flawlessly across the industry spectrum, and prides itself on its international standards of client care. Dryuk combines knowledge of chemistry and biology to assist pharmaceutical clients around the globe in resolving all patent snags that they encounter. Under her watch, the firm has recently been dispensing clearance advice to Dutch pharmaceutical company Synthon BV; conducting patent searches and appearing in a precedent-setting patent cancellation action on behalf of HIV patient association CO 100% Life; and representing chemical multinational DuPont in a major invalidity dispute.
