Attorneys of Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners protect the interests of ZAO Ultracraft once again in a patent dispute

By its decision issued on 29 September 2014 the Vologda Region Arbitrazh Court has fully dismissed the opponent’s claim to invalidate the Russian utility model patent held by ZAO Ultracraft. The utility model refers to the innovative technology for ultrasonic testing of steel structures used for high-tech equipment supplied by the client to Germany, Japan, etc.

The Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners attorneys had earlier managed to have the Rospatent’s decision to revoke the client’s patent cancelled in the Intellectual Property Court (the IP Court), which was a landmark decision for the IP Court as far as it was the first time the Court reviewed and pointed that it was inacceptable for the Chamber for Patent Disputes to accept copies of  written evidence that do not comply with the validity criterion.

The client was represented by the Head of Intellectual Property /TMT at Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners Pavel Sadovsky and Associate Irina Kosovskaya.
