For support at every stage of the patent lifecycle, Gowling WLG is a persuasive option – it is as confident handling sweeping worldwide portfolios as it is duking it out in court at a domestic and international level. Prestigious recent instructions include filing several patent applications for Honeywell International in relation to refrigerant fluids and insulation materials. Responsible for both briefs is David Aylen, who has spent the last 12 years of his three-decade career as managing partner of the firm’s Russia/CIS office. He operates flawlessly on both sides of the contentious/non-contentious divide, and since arriving in Russia has made a significant contribution towards improving the country’s IP legal landscape. Fulsome support comes from fellow all-rounders Vladislav Ugryumov and Alexander Christophoroff. Disputes, IP due diligence and licensing are all in a day’s work for life sciences sage Ugryumov; while Christophoroff is a dual-qualified patent attorney and attorney at law who has set precedents both in the general and commercial courts and at Rospatent.
