Developments in Goltsblat BLP Intellectual Property practice.


Beginning from 1 October 2010, IP will become part of the Goltsblat BLP Dispute Resolution practice. Elena Trusova will be in charge of all IP related issues as the Head of IP Group.

Since the number of client instructions relating to legal protection of IP assets is steadily increasing, Elena’s key task in her new capacity will be to develop and consolidate this capability of the firm. In addition to that, as before, Elena will be heavily involved in insolvency and bankruptcy cases, including by providing legal support within the scope of various bankruptcy procedures, representing debtors and creditors, and handling disputes arising from construction and architectural businesses and lawsuits for protection of honour and dignity.

Elena has been part of our dispute resolution practice for more than 5 years and is a leading expert on IP dispute resolution, in particular, IP protection in courts, the Rospatent Chamber for Patent Disputes and the antitrust authorities. Elena is an Attorney at Law, a member of the Moscow Region Chamber of Attorneys since 2002 and a Patent Attorney of the Russian Federation.

Ekaterina Tilling, who used to be in charge of our IP service, has left Goltsblat BLP effective from 1 October 2010. For any matters relating to intellectual property, please contact Elena Trusova.
