Liapunov and Co. is ranked among e-filing leaders in Russia in 2016.
Our company is reckoned among the Top 10 IP firms by electronic filings in 2016 in Russia according to the Russian PTO (Rospatent) and the Federal Institute of Industrial Property (FIPS) (FIPS – leaders in electronic filing in 2016).
We value efforts of the Russian PTO to develop and promote electronic filing services in Russia which we are using widely for filing trademark applications. The electronic filing services effectively supplement the network of the Technology and Innovation Support Centers created in the regions of the Russian Federation, providing a “direct” access to the Patent Office for users from all over the country.
Let us note that the official fees for electronic filings are reduced by 15%. Taking into account said benefit and convenience of the electronic filing, we are positive about the number of applications filed electronically in Russia will continue to grow.
