Dear Sirs,

Allow us to introduce ourselves: we are a Patent Attorneys firm «Konstantin Shilan & Co.» specializing in all types of services related to intellectual property protection both in Russia and the former republics of the USSR as well as under the Eurasian Patent Convention.

Our partners and staff are highly qualified professionals with a vast experience in patent examination, research, information searches, licensing, lawsuits and arbitration etc.

We have a large and effective practice in filing patent, industrial design, utility model and trademark applications for foreign applicants in Russia following the national procedure as well as entering international PCT applications into the National Phase in Russia and the Regional Phase in Eurasia. The high qualification of our attorneys usually allows us to avoid lengthy correspondence with the Patent Offices and obtain patents and registration certificates in the shortest possible time as well as minimise our client’s expenses.

We have also been very success in overcoming objections of the Russian Patent/Trademarks Office and receiving approval for international trademark registrations after an initial refusal. We would like you to pay your special attention to the fact that we win almost all the cases we handle for our clients in Courts and Courts of Appeal, in particular - to the cases receiving huge public response – when we managed to stand up for the world-wide known brands of the companies «Dessange International” (France) and Deutsche Amphibolin Werke von Robert Murjan” (Germany).

We have been getting good results in patent search in Russian patent, science and technology sources as requested by our foreign partners. It often happens that the results of a search like that prove extremely helpful in cancelling patents/registrations in those countries where Examiners tend to ignore Russian language sources altogether.

All of the above has made us in recent years one of the most successful Russian Patent Attorneys firm representing foreign applicants in Russia.

You can find more detailed information about us as well as our complete Schedule of Fees including the official fees at our web site.

We are also enclosing herewith our basic Schedule of Fees with both our own service charges and the official fees specified. Our charges have remained almost the same over the past twelve years and we hope that your clients and you will find them competitive.

We are looking forward to working with you in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Konstantin Shilan,
Partner and Director General
