POLSERVICE has cemented its standing as a potent force on the Polish legal landscape since its inception in 1964. The group guides inventors from the early stages of ideation through to creation, monetisation and beyond, ensuring that the patents it drafts are fully aligned with their ultimate commercial objectives. As testament to its up-to-the-minute legal knowledge, it played a key role in the recent reform of the nation’s IP laws and the introduction of specialised IP courts. Co-heading the patent teams are Alicja Rogozińska and Andrzej Rosa. Rogozińska thrives in the material sciences and mechanical space, where she excels in the art of strategy; while electrical engineering pro Rosa is a familiar face at the EPO. Vice president of the AIPPI’s Polish branch and talented attorney Marta Joanna Kawczyńska provides incisive counsel to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
Alicja Rogozińska is a Polish patent attorney, as well as a European patent attorney and a professional representative before the EUIPO. She joined POLSERVICE Patent and Trademark Attorneys Office in 1997 after an extended period working with the firm on patent translations. At the end of 2019, she was appointed head of the firm’s patent team.
With her background in material engineering, Ms Rogozińska specialises in the prosecution and maintenance of patents for inventions in the field of mechanical construction and technology and relative areas. Her work also covers rights of protection for utility models and registration of industrial designs, as well as litigation procedures, especially in patent matters.
Ms Rogozińska graduated with a master’s from the faculty of material engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology. She completed postgraduate studies in intellectual property at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and at the European School of Law and Administration in Warsaw. Since 1983 she has been a certified German translator with the Polish Supreme Technical Organisation.
Ms Rogozińska is active in a number of professional organisations. She is a member of the Polish Chapter of the Licensing Executives Society (LES) International and currently acts as treasurer of LES Poland. Since 2006 she has been a member of the Disciplinary Committee of the Institute of Professional Representatives before the EPO.
