The full-service Arzinger has made intellectual property a central pillar of its all-encompassing corporate practice. Its patent offering is equally comprehensive, with portfolio management, litigation and contract negotiation all within its wheelhouse; and it has impressive geographical reach, thanks to a network of contacts throughout the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region. Its clientele – which includes major biotechnology and pharmaceutical players, as well as a range of manufacturing companies – appreciates its smart utilisation of innovative software products for the monitoring and assessment of IP portfolios, data and other documents. The co-captains of the practice are Kateryna Oliinyk and Taras Kyslyy. Dual-qualified patent attorney and attorney at law Oliinyk has been busy advising energy start-up SolarGaps on its patent strategy in Ukraine, the European Union and the United States. Meanwhile, Kyslyy is a formidable ally in patent disputes of all flavours – he recently fought the corner of Teva Pharmaceuticals and Defense Technologies LLC in commercially crucial battles – while also assisting with projects in the media and telecommunications fields.
