We are also well-placed to advise on all aspects of patent strategy, portfolio management, and the exploitation of patents, including licensing.

The Eurasian Patent Convention provides for patent protection in the states which formerly made up the USSR. It provides a means for gaining protection in 11 member states of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

The Eurasian Patent Office is located in Moscow and the Convention is administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Persons from any United Nations state, bound by the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property and the PCT can apply for patent protection in all countries bound by the treaty by filing an Eurasian patent application in the Russian language. Alternatively, Eurasian patents can be applied for via the PCT route.

An Eurasian patent provides protection for a maximum term of twenty years from the filing date.

The following states are included in the Eurasian patent system.

(AZ) Azerbaijan; (AM) Armenia; (BY) Belarus; (GE) Georgia; (KZ) Kazakstan; (KG) The Kyrgyz Republic; (MD) Republic of Moldova; (RU) Russian Federation; (TJ) Republic of Tajikistan; (UA) Ukraine.
