Invalidation of Russian Patents for Inventions No. 2400518 and No. 2355729.

July, 2021

Russian patents for inventions No. 2400518 and No. 2355729 have been fully invalidated in result of excellent teamwork of YUS’s specialists. These patents had prevented manufacturers acting in good faith, including our client (a large oil company), from using the long known method of producing a well-known product, and using this well-known product for the known purpose. An end to these disputes was put by the Presidium of the Intellectual Property Court, which supported the decisions of the Intellectual Property Court confirming the lawfulness of the decisions of the Chamber for Patent Disputes (Cases No.  SIP-674/2019, No. SIP-677/2019, No. SIP-676/2019).

The key to success was a thorough preparation with an in-depth investigation of the respective technical field, and the professionalism of the team representing the client’s interests before the Chamber for Patent Disputes and the Intellectual Property Court.
